MD Dept. of Natural Resources seeks input on improving trails

From MHC Trails and Greenways Committee:

Request for Comments

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is seeking comments on equestrian issues and concerns about Maryland state owned trails, located in state parks, state forests and wildlife management areas.  The comments will be incorporated into the "Land Preservation and Recreation Plan" or "LPRP", which is done every five years.  Last time, trails were left out entirely.  This year,  trails will be included and given significant space.  The plan may include maintenance, improvements, new trails and land purchases.

A "Trails Working Group" was formed consisting of representatives of trail user interest groups (equestrians, hikers, mountain bikers, ATV'ers, etc.) and asked to survey their member's for issues and concerns.  What changes and improvements would you like to see implemented?

General comments such as, "Enlarge trailhead parking lots for trailers", will be included in the body of the report.  Specific comments such as, "Enlarge the parking lot for trailers at Monocacy NRMA", will be included in the Appendix.

Please send your comments so that DNR can improve our trail riding experience and increase our riding opportunities.
Ron MacNab will be collecting comments from trail riders through the Yahoo Groups, MarylandTrailRiders , and TROT-Members,  or you may email him directly using the subject line "Request for Comments" at

All comments due by June 15.
