Allows the appropriate Secretary to: (1) add trails to the Trail in accordance with the National Trails System Act, including trails located on non-Federal land if the land owner has consented and entered into an agreement for management of the land in accordance with this Act; and (2) acquire land and interests in land for the Trail only from willing sellers.
