Travel Analysis

Green Mountain and Finger Lakes National Forests -- Road Study Update – Travel Analysis Report Now Available

Thank you to all who contributed to the road study (also known as the Travel Analysis). The Forest Service has released all of the Travel Analysis Reports that analyze the existing roads systems and identify opportunities to achieve a more sustainable road system for each National Forest and Prairie.  These reports are part of a nationwide requirement and are not decision documents -- instead, they provide an analysis of the road system as it exists today.  All future proposed actions and decisions will involve further opportunities for public input and engagement at the project-level under National Environmental Policy Act processes.  If you have a specific question on a road, trail, or area you may contact our office for more information by clicking here.
