Tusayan – Community Trails Master Plan and Public Comment


The Community Trails Master Plan was developed by the Town of Tusayan and Trails Inspire, LLC and was unanimously approved by the Town Council in October 2017. The approval was contingent on a period of public scoping to receive feedback on the plan from locals, trail users, stakeholders, and recreational user groups. All comments that are within the scope of the project will be considered in the development of the final Master Plan.

Public comment on the plan will be open for one month, beginning on March 21st and ending on May 7th, 2018. Click the following link to go to the Master Plan document. Comments can be submitted in the form below, via email to,  or by mail to Town of Tusayan – PO Box 709 Tusayan, Arizona, 86023.

A public meeting on the Master Plan will take place on Wednesday, March 28th, at 11:30 am at Tusayan Town Hall, 845 Mustang Drive. The meeting will consist of a short presentation about the project and an open-house style showing of maps and descriptions of the new trail segments. The public is invited to share ideas, ask questions and voice your concerns. Lunch will be provided.

The Master Plan consists of approximately 11.5 miles of new non-motorized, multi-use trails for visitors and residents alike. Of these, 8.8 miles will be natural surface singletrack, 1.8 miles will be four-foot wide, crushed gravel path and 0.8 miles will be ADA accessible. The Master Plan document details the individual trail segments.

The Master Plan objectives were arrived at through a combination of the town’s objectives from the 2024 plan and stakeholder and public feedback during the scoping process.

The Tusayan Community Trails Master Plan objectives are as follows:

  • Develop a non-motorized multi-use trail system providing safe and sustainable recreational trail routes for visitors and residents
  • Identify commuter trail routes for residents
  • Highlight the natural beauty of the Tusayan area
  • Include opportunities for signage interpreting the natural features of the area
  • Provide connectivity with existing trails
  • Develop the Grand Canyon History Trail – an interpretive trail telling the story of the human history of the Grand Canyon area.
  • Provide the Town of Tusayan, Kaibab National Forest and landowners with a detailed summary of potential trail alignments and construction notes as well as preliminary cost estimates for construction and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process.
