I'd contact IMBA as a first step. They can help with trail development and design, and can even send out a crew to help volunteers with construction. Their website is www.imba.org
What I've seen in some areas, Tsali Trails in NC specifically, is that there is a network of 4 trails. Two to the West of the parking lot and two to the East. The equestrians and Mtn bikers alternate days on the pair of trails. It seems to work well and keep user conflict to a minimum. I think the hikers are lumped together with the equestrian as there is less of a conflict with use.
