Table 9. Problems to be rectified to bring system components rated fair or poor into compliance (good rating) by trail/route, 2004.
Some areas need to be brushed to meet specifications.
Trout Lake Cycle Trail
Newberry- Rexton Cycle Trail
Some areas need to be brushed to meet specifications
Silver Cr. Cycle Trail
Poor job of brushing, some areas need to be brushed to meet specifications.
Norway ATV Trail
Numerous wet areas need reroutes or boardwalks. ORV users are doing reroutes by bypassing these areas, but a permanent reroute or boardwalk needs to be done in most cases. A portion of the trail that lies west of Norway Truck Trail (runs N/S) should be closed. Major damage is occurring in some areas and no options for reroutes in most locations. Predominantly rock and swamp. Possibilities do exist to use other two tracks and a portion of forest road to eliminate this poor trail mileage and replace it with comparable mileage of usable trail.

Signage is poor. Need more confidence markers, directional arrows, begin and end signs and stops. Needs additional brushing. Reroutes need to be put back
