Planning Team Members

The Planning Team, assembled in late March 2012,  developed a “Trail Concept Plan,” an articulation of the Great Shasta Rail Trail’s vision, mission, character and aesthetic.  Special thanks to the National Park Service, Rivers, Trails, & Conservation Assistance program for the invaluable trail planning and facilitation assistance for this project.  The Plan has been printed and will be posted to this web site soon.
