Proposed trail configurations

The US Forest Service seeks comment on the following actions, which relate to existing trail segments and are proposed to be added to the National Forest Service system within the Appalachian Trail Management Area in Norwich, VT. 

  • Designate the Joshua Trail, which is the middle of the three existing mountain bike trails between the Tucker Trail and Joshua Road, as an official non-motorized hike/bicycle crossing of the AT. The total trail length to be added to the NFS system is 0.98 miles. 
  • Designate the Dothan Brook Trail, including a small relocation to move the trail fully into the AT corridor, as an official foot-travel only side trail of the AT. The total trail length to be added to the NFS system is 0.93 miles. 
  • Designate the Griggs Mountain Trail as an official foot-travel only side trail of the AT. The total trail length to be added to the NFS system is 0.12 miles. 

The US Forest Service invites you to comment on these changes by July 10, 2021, based on the attached information:
