    Includes whereas clauses. Authorizes the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources (DNCR) to add the Dan River Trail (Trail) in Stokes and Rockingham counties to the State Parks System as a State trail. Requires DNCR to support, promote, encourage, and facilitate the establishment of trail segments on State park lands and on lands of other federal, State, local, and private landowners. Specifies that on portions of the Trail that cross property controlled by agencies or owners other than the Division of Parks and Recreation, the laws, rules, and policies of those agencies or owners govern the property's use. Excludes this authorization from the statutory requirement that additions be accompanied by adequate appropriations for land acquisition, development, and operations. Allows the State to receive donations of appropriate land and allows the State to purchase other needed lands for the Trail with funds in the Land and Water Fund, the Parks and Recreation Trust Fund, the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund, and other available sources of funding.
