NCDOT Great Trails State Plan Needs Your Input

NCDOT Great Trails State Plan

The Great Trails State Plan is a network of multi-use trails of statewide significance connecting North Carolina’s counties and population centers with state parks and important recreational assets. It is founded upon extensive local and regional efforts to plan and build trails.

What trails do you use and like most?  What would make that experience better? What are the most important new trail connections that should be made?

The N.C. Department of Transportation wants to hear from the public about North Carolina’s trails and how to make them better.

NCDOT recently collected more than 11,000 responses to a public survey. The next step is to collect feedback on the statewide trails network plan draft.​​​​​

​​The draft Great Trails State plan was developed through a review of past and current planning efforts, steering committee input, 14 stakeholder workshops and a public survey.

The public is encouraged to review the maps and provide feedback on the Great Trails State network draft. ​​All comments are due by Friday, Dec. 4, 2020.​​ ​
