Forest Service seeks input on trails

The U.S. Forest Service will hold a meeting in Dalton on Tuesday, Feb. 15, for the public to discuss the long-term management of recreation trails on the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the City Hall Council Chambers. It is one of several across the state.

The Forest Service says the meetings are the “beginning of a new collaborative effort to understand the desires and expectations of trail recreationists and to develop a common understanding of the natural resource management issues and needs.”

“We hope this will bring about strong partnerships to ensure the forest has a sustainable trail system,” said George Bain, supervisor of the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest. “Through collaboration, we will be able to better address the needs and improve enjoyment of trail users. We also hope to improve the condition of our trails system, protect watersheds and help sustain local economies benefiting from these popular recreation activities.”

Information on the trail system is available in all Forest Service offices and on the web at www.fs.usda.gov/conf under the section entitled “Recreation.”
