Inyo National Forest Over Snow Vehicle Use Designation

This project will designate motorized over-snow vehicle (OSV/snowmobile) use on National Forest System roads and trails and areas on National Forest System lands as allowed, restricted, or prohibited. It will also identify trails for grooming for snowmobile use.

We expect to have a proposed action out in April, but would like your thoughts about snowmobile use at this time,to help inform our initial proposed action. If you have some ideas about snowmobile use, please let us know!
