The National Forests in North Carolina (NFNC) are working on a trail planning project during 2012, and the trails need your help! With federal funding on the wane, it’s becoming more and more difficult for the Forest Service to maintain the trails we all love. In light of that, NFNC is hoping to get public input while developing their “Non-Motorized Trails Strategy” next year. A series of workshops are planned in January to get public input from Pisgah and Nantahala’s trail users, and it appears that the Forest Service is hoping to get more volunteers putting in hours maintaining trails in the future. It’s great that they’re reaching out to the public like this, so let’s make a showing at these workshops and tell them how important the trails are!
