The draft recommendations are based on the input we received in May from workshops, surveys, and online. The plan includes major county connections and detailed recommendations for some of the smaller communities and the City of Jackson.
The plan strives to be visionary and pragmatic, understanding that feasibility and cost are key to implementation. Unpaved seasonal trails and routes reflect the rural character of the county and provide a more economical approach to developing a county-wide trail network. The topography and water features that make Jackson County so special, also make it a challenge to implement off-road trails. Many of the proposed routes follow abandoned rail corridors where topography and water issues are already taken care of and the biggest obstacle will be acquiring easements.
