Ten Lakes Travel Management Planning

In 1977, Congress passed the Montana Wilderness Study Act designating the Ten Lakes Wilderness Study Area. The act requires the Forest Service to administer these acres to maintain their presently existing wilderness character and potential for inclusion in the National Wilderness Preservation System, meaning the Forest Service must maintain the character that existed in 1977 when the Act was passed.

A 2007 lawsuit settlement agreement with the Montana Wilderness Association commits the Forest Service to develop summer and winter travel plans for the Ten Lakes Wilderness Study Area. Travel management planning for the area was previously begun in conjunction with the Galton Vegetation Management Project. However, the Forest Supervisor decided it merits its own analysis process re-scoped the travel management proposed action on April 13, 2015.

This page provides information related to project development and the planning progress, including links to many historical record documents requested by the public.

Please contact District Ranger Bryan Donner at the Eureka Ranger Station, (406) 296-2536, for additional information.

August 2019 Update

Work on the Ten Lakes Travel Management Planning project has been paused to focus resources on ecosystem restoration and forest health issues occurring on the Kootenai National Forest.
