Travel Management planning

The Shoshone National Forest began the Travel Management planning process in June 2015.  This process will designate a sustainable system of roads, trails, and areas that are open for motor vehicle use with public involvement. As a part of this process, the Shoshone National Forest is following the rules set forward in the 2005 Travel Management Rule.
