Hiking Trails for America started this petition to Chairman, Congressman Raúl M. Grijalva

 

In 1968 Congress passed the National Trails System Act, signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson.  The Act enabled the U.S. Park Service to acquire the remaining 700 miles of the 2,190-mile Appalachian Trail, making it continuous from end-to-end and secure for posterity.  Since that date 10 more trails have been added to a National Trail System. Why is it that none of these 10 trails is continuous or secure for posterity or both?

The 90th Congress and President Johnson would be aghast at this state of affairs.

By signing the petition you will be joining with us to insist that Congress schedule an oversight hearing to deal with this issue. And several others. It’s about time. There has been no such hearing since 1978, 43 years!
