ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A volunteer committee is beginning a statewide assessment of Maryland’s public trails.

The Department of Natural Resources Trails Committee holds its first meeting Thursday in Annapolis.

The 15-member panel includes representatives from trail user groups around the state.

Its mission is to recommend investments, goals and objectives for trails open to both motorized and non-motorized recreation.

State officials will consider the recommendations as they compile a five-year land preservation and recreation plan due in 2014.
