Jim Schmid’s Trail Quote of the Day #33 – November 15, 2015



It seems logical that the people who want trails, will use trails, and who live near trails … should have the opportunity to take part in the planning and management of these trails. This idea is central to the Ridge Trail Council’s philosophy—involvement of the community, building support and stewardship, and establishing a strong and continuing caretaking ethic.
