Across the Forest, the common thread from BTNF communities and local FS staff has been a priority need for trail maintenance. The BTNF has 3000 miles of incredible trail opportunities, but only 17% of those trails are up to USFS System Standards. Trail maintenance is necessary to reduce impacts to natural resources and to connect the public with their public lands. In our first summer season Friends of the BT is addressing several high-priority trails identified by local communities by coordinating local partners, willing volunteers, and the necessary FS staff.
