The Coconino National Forest is proposing to expand mass transit shuttle service at select trailheads in the greater Sedona area to help reduce traffic congestion, overflow parking areas and to improve pedestrian safety. The transit proposals include shuttle services at Dry Creek, Little Horse, Mescal, Cathedral Rock and Soldiers Pass. It would operate Thursday through Sunday from 8 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. beginning in March of 2022. Popular trailheads are often beyond parking capacity. Parking demand then displaces visitors more than a half mile away into undesignated areas, surrounding neighborhoods, and surface streets. This traffic pattern results in resource damage, adverse public safety, and diminished quality of life for residents.
