  The National Park Service has recently released updated GPS trail data
  (public domain, for Acadia National Park (Maine, USA). Currently there
  is a tremendous gap in trail data for the park. This would be a
  reliable bulk import of data which would server as an excellent base
  for future user-based data to be build upon. What that are other
  people's thoughts on this import?

Is there really so much data that it has to be treated as "bulk import"?
Can you for example get it into OSM format and edit the area in josm and
sanity-check/quality-control it, verify it doesn't conflict, etc?  If
so, you're not really in "import" land and are in a space with fewer
perils.

From a quick glance at the map, there is some existing data.
