Travel Analysis Report

Forest road

Travel analysis takes a comprehensive look at the roads of the entire forest, and the issues, risks, and benefits for all users, and the associated forest resources. Interdisciplinary teams have reviewed available data, along with information we received from the public, about our roads, access needs, and the affected forest resources with the goal of determining where changes to current road management practices would be beneficial. The Forest has released a travel analysis report that outlines existing roads systems and identifies opportunities to achieve a more sustainable system of roads. These travel analysis reports are part of nationwide requirement involving national forests across the country.  MORE...
