A landowner may grant a trail easement to a nonprofit organization or government to allow the nonprofit or government to construct or maintain a public trail on the private property.
By donating or selling a trail easement to a nonprofit organization or government (the “Holder”), a landowner may provide their land for a public trail without having to subdivide the land or lose ownership and control of the land. The easement may address matters such as:
- How wide is the trail and what sort of facilities are allowed?
- Are bicycles allowed? Horses? Picnicking?
- May the landowner close the trail temporarily for hunting? Timber harvests? Manure spreading?
- Who is liable if there is an accident?
The Pennsylvania Land Trust Association has created the Model Trail Easement Agreement as well as other models to assist in establishing public trails on private property.
