National Forests

Here is a list of National Forest issues that the CMC considers important:

  • Protect the Mountains-to-Sea, Art Loeb, Benton MacKaye and Bartram trail corridors with the same special protections the Appalachian Trail has;
  • Protect our trail areas with Backcountry status and trail tread protection from timber cutting;
  • Give Daniel Ridge, Cedar Rock Mountain and Panthertown Valley area Backcountry management status;
  • Make the Snowball and Shopes Creek areas part of the Craggy Mountains/Big Ivy Special Interest Area.
