            ``(31) Route 66 national historic trail.--
                    ``(A) In general.--The Route 66 National Historic 
                Trail, a trail that includes all the alignments of U.S. 
                Highway 66 in existence between 1926 and 1985, 
                extending along a route of approximately 2,400 miles 
                from Chicago, Illinois, to Santa Monica, California, as 
                generally depicted on the map entitled `Route 66 
                National Historic Trail, Proposed Route', numbered P26/
                141,279, and dated December 2017.
                    ``(B) Availability of map.--The map described in 
                subparagraph (A) shall be on file and available for 
                public inspection in the appropriate offices of the 
                National Park Service, Department of the Interior.
                    ``(C) Administration.--The Route 66 National 
                Historic Trail shall be administered by the Secretary 
                of the Interior, acting through the Director of the 
                National Park Service. Such administration shall be 
                conducted in a manner that respects and maintains the 
                idiosyncratic nature of the Route 66 National Historic 
                Trail.
                    ``(D) Land acquisition.--The United States may not 
                acquire for the Route 66 National Historic Trail any 
                land or interest in land--
                            ``(i) outside the exterior boundary of any 
                        federally managed area without the consent of 
                        the owner of the land or interest in land; or
                            ``(ii) that extends more than an average of 
                        one-quarter of a mile on either side of the 
                        trail.
                    ``(E) No buffer zone created.--Nothing in this Act,

                authorized by this Act, or the management plan for the 
                Route 66 National Historic Trail shall be construed to 
                create buffer zones outside of the Trail. That 
                activities or uses can be seen, heard, or detected from 
                the acquired land shall not preclude, limit, control, 
                regulate, or determine the conduct or management of 
                activities or uses outside of the trail.
                    ``(F) Energy.--Nothing in this Act, the acquisition 
                of land or an interest in land authorized by this Act, 
                or the management plan for the Route 66 National 
                Historic Trail shall prohibit, hinder, or disrupt the 
                development, production, or transmission of energy.
                    ``(G) Eminent domain or condemnation.--In carrying 
                out this Act, the Secretary of the Interior may not use 
                eminent domain or condemnation.''.
