Not knowing the specifics of the application in question, I can't comment. What I can say is that, as I alluded to above, is this seems to be a reason to be involved with your local organization. They may have knowledge of where trail application are more likely to succeed, help with what will make a successful application, and can advocate on behalf of your proposal. Its not incredibly complicated (here, in BC, on Crown land), but its also not without a bit of confusion until you get all the language and whatnot figured out. And also, again, it can come back to the limited resources available to land managers. Often times, they prefer to deal with one organization (ie your local trail org), than a bunch of individual builders. Its certainly easier for them to have one point of contact (whether or not that's a valid reason is up for debate).
