National forest seeking trail allies

Learn about the U.S. National Forests’ Trail Strategy initiative at a Thursday, Jan. 26, workshop in Franklin, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Macon County Community Facilities Building south of town on U.S. 441.

Any hikers, mountain bikers and horseback riders are encouraged to participate by offering their thoughts and views about the trails. The forest service wants to know what trails are in good shape, which ones are in bad shape, which ones need fixing, which should be kicked to the curb — and anything else the public wants to spout off about the future of trails in the region.

The forest service also wants to engage trail clubs and trail users in new partnership to help be trail stewards.
