U.S. Forest Service Travel Analysis Process: The Road Study

The White National Forest manages more than 600 miles of roads.  Many Forest roads provide land management- and user-related benefits, however roads that cannot be adequately maintained can be unsafe to visitors and threaten ecosystems. The road study will begin to help us prioritize our limited resources to effectively manage roads used by visitors and the accomplishment of our broad natural resource management mission.
