Dear Western States Trail stakeholders,
During the past several weeks representatives from the Western States Trail Foundation and the Western States 100-Mile Run Foundation have met regarding the future of the Western States Trail. Both organizations have agreed to allocate resources to work together in maintaining the trail, in preserving its historic nature and in ensuring its accessibility to the public. Our long-term goal is to develop a collaborative, strategic vision for future efforts between our organizations in all of these key areas. Both organizations will do this while working in collaboration and cooperation with the private land owners and other interested organizations and foundations as well as local, state and federal agencies that are charged with managing this precious resource.
We plan regularly updating all Western States stakeholders on our progress in this joint trail agreement.
