National Forests Examine Sustainable Trail Options

magical_light_on_trail_to_Blacklock_Point_0.jpg

The lands around us are crisscrossed with trails used by the serious long-distance hikers and the just-an-hour plodders as well. 

Legislation passed in 2016 requires the U.S. Forest Service to move toward a sustainable trail system... sustainable environmentally and economically. 

And the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest is getting started on its compliance, holding public meetings and making other moves to assess public needs and interest.  A National Forest rep joins us to further explain the meaning of "sustainable trail."
