Willing Seller Amendments of 2000 to the National Trails System Act - Expresses the sense of Congress that, in order to address problems involving multijurisdictional authority over the national scenic and historic trails, the head of each Federal agency with jurisdiction over an individual trail should: (1) cooperate with appropriate State and local officials and private persons to pursue the trail's development; and (2) be granted sufficient authority to purchase from willing sellers lands critical to trail completion.

Amends the National Trails System Act to require Federal land purchases under such Act to be only with the owner's consent. Prohibits Federal funds from being expended for the acquisition of land or land interests for specified System trails without the owner's consent.
