RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - Green Mountain National Forest officials have released a plan for maintaining more than 900 miles of trails in Vermont.

The Times Argus reports (https://bit.ly/1USRP4a ) the comprehensive trail strategy looks at 936 miles of trails. It establishes some parameters for how new trails might be added and established trails can be maintained, altered, renovated or discontinued.

Recreation planner Carol Burd says it’s not unusual for a resident to propose new trails, and the strategy will let the public know what it considers before accepting a new trail.

The strategy provides basic plans for future management of the trails and a long list of public comments, many of which urge forest officials to provide more mountain biking trails in southern Vermont.
