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.

Travel Analysis is expected to identify opportunities to decommission roads, close roads, or convert roads to other uses, such as trails. This analysis will be documented in a Travel Analysis Report for the Sequoia National Forest. Though this is not a decision-making process, implementation of any future opportunities will require a site-specific NEPA decision-making process.
