Cordova Comprehensive Trails Plan.

The Cordova Comprehensive Trails Plan is an initiative of the Cordova Trails Committee, a sub-committee of the Parks & Recreation Commission.

During the past two years we have been working with the National Parks Service, Rivers Trails and Conservation Assistance program (RTCA) to develop a comprehensive trails plan for the City of Cordova and surrounding area. This is a multi-phase process that includes:

  • Identifying and mapping existing trails in the area
  • Identifying possible trail improvements and expansions
  • Working with local landowners and land managers to identify shared trails management desires
  • Public outreach within the Cordova community to determine what the public and businesses want in a local trails system
  • Creating a final draft of a comprehensive trails plan that will guide our efforts in the coming years with implementing a shared vision of a Cordova trails system.
