The Maryland DNR State Trails Task Force is working on the trails portion of the Maryland Recreation Plan that will be sent to the Federal Government at the end of this year.

Take the survey here.

The survey asks a variety of multiple choice and open ended questions that will help DNR determine which outdoor recreation facilities, programs and services do and do not meet the needs of the community. Areas include State parks, forests, wildlife areas and trails. MD_DNR_Survey

Public input will help guide the update of the Maryland Land Preservation and Recreation Plan, which will serve as a roadmap for future State outdoor recreation facilities and services.

“I’m hopeful many runners, walkers and hikers who participate in club events take advantage of this chance to weigh in on matters,” said Kevin Spradlin, of the Potomac Highlands Distance Club. “The PHDC utilized DNR-managed trail system in Allegany and Garrett counties, including 22 miles of trail in the club’s flagship event, the Fire on the Mountain 50K, in Green Ridge State Forest, but also the trails in Rocky Gap and Deep Creek Lake state parks, as well as New Germany, Big Run state parks and Savage River State Forest.”FOTM_2012_web
