To: Hi All, About four years ago at AERC convention, I sat in on a trail preservation meeting and heard a speaker who has worked for years on developing and preserving trails. She pointed out that when a trail has been used for a number of years (is there a specific amount of time?) even if it is on private land, access cannot be denied. (kind of like a grandfather clause?) I am currently working with a consortium of community members and various trail users, the Forest Service and City Park Commission to build and renovate and maintain trails in our area. In one area, a portion of a trail goes through three plots of privately owned land. One of the land owners is working with the consortium but we have been unsuccessful in contacting the other land owners. As we devise a plan for re-routing the trail, it will still be necessary to go through a small portion of some of the private land. It would be helpful to know if what I remember hearing is correct. Does anyone out there know if and where I can find information about the necessity for private land owners to allow access to trail when the trail has been in use for a number of years? Thanks for any help or suggestions. Pat Super =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Ridecamp is a service of Endurance Net, http://www.endurance.net.
