Travel Analysis Process, Subpart A


The purpose of the Travel Analysis Process for the Sequoia National Forest is to identify opportunities for the road system to meet current or future management objectives, based on ecological, social, cultural, and economic concerns. This process is an important part of effectively managing the National Forest Transportation System, and includes an examination of resource management, public access, and Forest Service administrative requirements associated with the road system.

Sequoia National Forest personnel completed the analysis process in autumn 2014.  The Travel Analysis Report for the Sequoia National Forest identifies opportunities to decommission roads, close roads, or convert roads to other uses, such as trails.  Though this is not a decision-making process, implementation of any future opportunities will require a site-specific NEPA decision-making process.
