Private Landowners Hosting Blue Trails -- A Strength and A Challenge

By Lindsay Michel

We owe an enormous debt of gratitude to the many private landowners (individuals, land trusts, and corporations) who host about 40% of the length of the trails (~330 miles out of 825 total).

Each time these private lands change hands (from one generation to the next, or to another owner), we work to ensure the new landowners share the current commitment to trails for public enjoyment.
