Attention Milagrosa users!
Please read on for information from Neil Stitzer at Pima County NRPR about an upcoming reroute on the bottom section of Milagrosa:
"A 400’ section of the Milagrosa Trail will be re-routed due to private property ownership near the southern end of the trail. The new trail alignment on Pima County property will be 750’ in length. New trail construction and existing trail closure will take place January 2020. The existing trail will remain open until the new trail alignment is complete, at which time the existing trail will be closed, signed and rehabbed.
The Pima County Natural Resources Parks & Recreation department, Pima County Attorney’s Office and private property owner have negotiated an agreement for the trail alignment change. American Conservation Experience will be performing the new trail re-route and existing trail closure with a professional trail crew. We ask for your understanding in accepting this change to the Milagrosa Trail and that public input was not feasible during the decision making process.
We realize some trail users will not be pleased with the re-route due to familiarity with the existing trail alignment. However, please understand that given the circumstances this is the best possible outcome and fortunately the trail will remain open. The new trail alignment will be an improvement in terms of sustainability and depending on the trail user, be a preferred alternative to the existing trail alignment. We appreciate your cooperation in respecting private property ownership in the area, displaying trail and land stewardship by adapting to the new trail alignment, and helping spread the word throughout the trails community about this change.
If you have any questions, please contact the Pima County Natural Resources Parks & Recreation department: (520) 724 - 5000"
