SMMNRA Interagency Trail Management Plan
A NEPA and CEQA-based Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR) will accompany the TMP to provide a detailed analysis of potential environmental impacts of the proposed plan. The original federal and state notices to prepare the TMP EIS/EIR were published in 2003. In September 2005, NPS, State Parks, and SMMC/MRCA conducted public scoping meetings and gathered public comments on conceptual trail policies and map alternatives needed to prepare the Draft EIS/
