On November 2, 2005, the Forest Service announced a new regulation governing off-highway vehicles and other motor vehicle use on national forests and grasslands. The new rule requires each national forest or ranger district to designate roads, trails, and areas open to motor vehicle use. To comply with the rule, the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forests and Thunder Basin National Grassland developed an Action Plan for implementation of the new Travel Management Rule. The Action Plan is flexible and will be updated as implementation progresses. The Action Plan Key Points are available for your review.
