The General Criteria below define each Trail Class and are applicable to all system trails. Subsequent sections provide Additional Criteria specific to Motorized Trails, Pack and Saddle Trails, Snow Trails, and Water Trails.
Trail Class descriptions define “typical” attributes, and exceptions may occur for any attribute. Apply the Trail Class that most closely matches the managed objective of the trail.
These are descriptions of trails managed by the US Forest Service only. You will not find these descriptions for trails managed by any other agency. To gauge the difficulty of a trail, use length, elevation change, and view the trail map.Click Here to Download the Trail Class Matrix
