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.
We invite you to review the road system with us to help recommend opportunities that lead to a safe, affordable and environmentally sustainable road system. We encourage anyone who uses roads or benefits from a national forest to share information and ideas that could be added to the Road Study report.
