Trail Design & Preliminary Fundraising

The trail's design was completed in summer 2020 by IMBA's Trail Solutions Team. Simultaneously, the preliminary fundraising phase was launched, managing to secure $125,000. The Bean Peaks project is estimated to cost $1.5 million over 3 years.

Permitting & Public Fundraising

The Bean Peaks project received the final USFS permits in June 2023. A broad public fundraising campaign was just launched focusing on smaller to mid-level donations from both individuals and businesses. Our goal is to raise $350,000 before October 31st so we can break ground the same month.

Phase 1: Construction Fall 2023

We need your help NOW to secure the funding target of $350,000 in order to begin professional trail construction in the Fall of 2023. This will include:

  • Trailhead and parking
  • 5.9 miles of beginner and intermediate trails, including 3.4 miles of gravity flow trails

Trails will be ready to ride Spring 2024.

Phase 2: Construction Fall 2024

An additional 6.7 miles of trails to include beginner, intermediate and advanced trails, including 2.5 miles of gravity flow trails.

Phase 3: Construction Fall 2025

4.7 miles of intermediate and advanced trails including 3.5 miles of gravity flow trails.

Completion & Maintenance

Each construction phase will take place in the fall and open to the public in the spring of the following year. This is completely dependent upon financial support from the Prescott area community.

Post-opening efforts will pivot towards maintaining and enhancing the trails to ensure their long-term viability and continued enjoyment for users for many generations to follow.
