Land & Resources Management

This section includes information about trail planning, current projects and trail resource management and programs.


Generally, planning is at a broad scale. The Nez Perce National Historic Trail Comprehensive Plan provides management objectives and practices to be observed, identification of all significant natural, historical, and cultural resources to be preserved, cooperative agreement opportunities wtih State and local governments, and implementation of the trail marking plan. It is designated to provide a coordinated framework for the development interpretation, and protection of the trail.


Projects are proposed actions that are analyzed through the NEPA process (EIS, EA, or CE) that involve analyzing different alternatives to the proposed action, requires public notice and comment, and result in a NEPA decision (ROD, DN, or DM) which subject to an administrative appeals process, and ultimately is implemented on the ground.

Comprehensive Management Plan Revision

The 1990 CMP is obsolete, and no longer serves the needs of the administering agency and its many cooperators. Two interagency reviews of the 1990 NPNHT CMP have determined that the Plan needs to be revised.We welcome your comments and suggestions during this process.
