Model Grant of Trail Easement with Commentary: A Short Form Alternative to the Model Trail Easement Agreement

2010
Organizations/Sources: Pennsylvania Land Trust Association
The Model Grant of Trail Easement is brief--one page (exclusive of signatures)--as compared to the Model Trail Easement Agreement. The shorter document is useful where brevity is the paramount concern. If you want to establish certainty as to landowner and holder rights and responsibilities and other matters, the Model Trail Easement Agreement may be the better choice. Download both the model and the commentary. PALTA is accepting comments on the provisional second edition through November 2017. This provisional edition is suitable for use now.
