The local Canyon Club has taken on a project to make the Rim Trail more navigable and user-friendly.
According to project director Brian Price, the 23-member club of area business owners and involved community members has taken up the task of marking and mapping the trail, which skirts the edge of the Manson Mesa.
The goal is to better inform users of the trail of the trailhead location, distance, difficulty and different routes available.
Price said the group will be using survey information obtained from the city, combined with GPS mapping, to overlay the routes of the trail on top of an aerial picture of the area, to provide the most accurate visual reference for hikers.
