NCDOT Seeks Public Input on Draft Statewide Trail Network


After more than 11,000 North Carolinians shared their thoughts on the Great Trails State Plan survey, the North Carolina Department of Transportation is seeking public input on a first draft of the proposed network.

The Great Trails State Plan is an NCDOT-led effort to identify existing trails and define what actions need to take place to connect those trails statewide. The plan builds upon local and regional trails to identify one overall trail network that is focused on connections to state parks and populated areas. Learn more about the Great Trails State Plan here.

This summer, the department released a survey asking for the public to weigh in on where they would like to see new or better-connected trails.

Provide feedback on the plan’s current draft here. The final day to submit comments during this phase is Friday, December 4.
