Motorized Travel Management

In 2010 the Lassen National Forest completed an inventory of all the roads, trails, and areas used by motorized vehicles. Routes were identified that could be added to the National Forest Transportation System without undue environmental and economic impacts, such as designating those routes/areas for a variety of vehicular uses. As an outcome of this analysis, the Lassen National Forest is preparing plans for both off-highway vehicle and over-snow vehicle use. After significant stakeholder input, the Lassen National Forest Motor Vehicle Use Map Update project will begin mid-2018. The Lassen National Forest Over-Snow Vehicle Plan will complete the objection period on the Revised Final Impact Statement on May 18, 2018. Please visit the link above for more information.
