Tracks and Trails

The Tracks and Trails Datalayer represents unimproved roadways and trails that previously had been part of the MassGIS roads data. MassGIS now uses and distributes the Massachusetts Highway Department Roads layer, which does not include the tracks and trails. To preserve the linework, much of which appears on USGS Topographic maps, the features were extracted from an earlier version of the roads layer and placed into this statewide layer, named TRAILS (TRAILS_ARC in ArcSDE). The linework was derived from the 1:100,000 scale U.S. Geological Survey Digital Line Graphs. It is suggested that this layer be displayed with the MHD Roads, as many of the features are accessible from roads in the MHD inventory.
