Hikers, bikers and horse-people have long eyed the Central Arizona Project Canal as a "natural" for a trails system. There might be a dim glimmer of such a possibility. Ace Reporter Peter Corbett describes a $54,000 study underway that might help spark efforts to ultimately put in a trails system along the sprawling $4-billion water system. You will find the article in September 16th's Arizona Republic or online at:

The print version has a great map of the metroplex showing the canal system at a glance. The map appears to be missing from the online version. Anyway, the article was timed to precede a 2 p.m. Friday meeting at which people like you, HAZites that you are, can go and speak up about your preferences and opinions regarding this worthy idea. We put up a simple poll, too.
Well, there it is. Happy Trails
