From Gene King:
The US Forest Service is publishing for public notice and comment for 60 days proposed revisions to the agency’s national trail classification system, including the Trail Class Matrix and Design Parameters, and proposed implementing directives in the Forest Service Manual and Forest Service Handbook. For the Federal Register Notice available for public comment see www.fs.fed.us/recreation/ (http://www.fs.fed.us/recreation/), and scroll down below the pictures.
This is a 32 page Federal Register Notice, so they spend several pages talking about what they are going to propose. The actual text begins on page 8. The Trail Design Parameters begin on page 17. If you have US Forest Service lands in your State, these parameters will affect your State.
