Lander Community Trail Charrette

A Public Trail System Discussion

What: A Collaborative Discussion and Assessment

Wyoming Pathways, in conjunction with the UW Ruckelshaus Institute, Shoshone National Forest, Bureau of Land Management (BLM), City of Lander and Lander Cycling will organize a public trail planning charrette for nonmotorized trails in the Lander area. A charrette is an intensive planning session, where people collaborate on a shared vision. It provides a forum for ideas and offers the unique advantage of giving immediate feedback. More importantly, it allows everyone who participates to be a mutual author of the plan.


The charrette purpose is to gather input from trail users and to generate recommendations regarding the sustainable management of the nonmotorized trail system. This information will help inform and guide future trail planning, management, and funding for the Lander area.

Recommendations could take the form of possible trail improvements, ideas for maintenance and management, and enhancing partnerships to support Lander trails. This discussion will cover both winter and summertime trail use.

Participants will discuss trail system goals: what is currently working well, what could be improved, and what are priority trail system needs. Recommendations from the charrette will be provided to the land agencies and the community and may be used as a springboard for future public discussion.
