Work is underway to improve the Highline National Recreation Trail (Highline Trail) on the Tonto National Forest.

In September 2021, Tonto officials announced plans to improve and re-route portions of the Highline National Recreation Trail (Highline Trail) along with portions of the Arizona National Scenic Trail and trails in the communities of Pine and Strawberry to locations that would make them more sustainable.

A collaborative partnership with the Rim Country Trails Working Group identified and developed plans and prioritized trails to improve the environmental condition and user safety for trails on the Tonto.

The partnership consists of members from surrounding communities and specialized forest user groups which include Gila County, Arizona Trail Association, Pine Strawberry Fuels Reduction Inc., National Forest Foundation, Wild Arizona, Friends of the Tonto and Volunteers for Outdoor Arizona.
