The Northern Region of the U.S. Forest Service invites the public to help identify trails that need maintenance.
The Forest Service is working with partners and volunteers to increase the pace of trail maintenance.
The Forest Service will select nine to 15 priority areas within its nine regions across the country that are affected by a backlog in trail maintenance. The neglected trails may have reduced access, cause potential harm to natural resources or trail users and/or has the potential for increased future deferred maintenance costs.
The Northern Region manages more than 28,000 miles of trails that provide year-round motorized and non-motorized trail access.
To provide ideas contact your local Forest Service office or Kent Wellner, Regional Trail Program Manager, by April 5. Kent can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or (406) 329-3150.
