WeConservePA has updated the commentaries to its long and short-form trail easement model documents:

  • The Model Trail Easement Agreement with Commentary provides an expansive easement instrument that details many issues to avoid potential misunderstandings between landowners and holders. First published in 2007, the present edition (its fourth) of the model is informed by years of use and feedback from trail groups, conservation organizations, and governments from across America.
  • The Model Grant of Trail Easement with Commentary provides a one-page easement document for use where brevity is the paramount concern. This model was first published in 2010 and has likewise benefitted from user feedback through the years.
