Trails like this are often a cooperation with many jurisdictions, with tribal, federal, state, county, city and even park entities that own and maintain sections.

Agree with WRASTRO, looks like PTC is your best bet. 

 If they're the ones who aren't responding, your area's Reviewer may be able to offer helpful info on permissions (who owns where).

Usually the county Property Appraiser's or Tax Assessor's office. Current ownership info, with map search capability, is available free on their website in many areas though some counties are too poor/cheap to catch up to 21st century accessibility.
