Project Overview
Our purpose is to develop a comprehensive trails plan across land ownerships for the Clearwater Valley that will benefit all user groups and include: 1) improvements and maintenance for existing trail infrastructure, 2) some development of new trails, and 3) marketing to promote outdoor recreation and tourism.

All suggestions for trail improvements and new infrastructure will be evaluated for  Quality, Feasibility, Liability, Partnerships, Sustainability, Economic Impact, Environmental Issues, Education, and Tribal & Cultural Issues.
Once all suggestions are evaluated, the public will have an opportunity to weigh in on what to include in the final plan. In all cases, proposed improvements and new projects will have to go through a detailed planning and permitting process specific to each land manager. New trail projects will only be possible with land owner approval, funding for construction, and a long-term maintenance plan, including funding and partnerships to do the maintenance.
