- Carson National Forest Released Travel Management Environmental Assessment for 'West-side' Districts
- Carson National Forest Releases Proposed Action for Travel Management on Four Districts
Last Updated: August 13, 2009
The Carson National Forest has released their Proposed Action for Travel Management on the Canjilon, El Rito, and Tres Piedras Districts. They have also released a separate document for the Jicarilla District. The release of these documents starts the 30 day comment period for the public that ends on August 17th. Comments on these documents are required for 'standing' in the appeal process that will follow. The Carson National Forest is proposing to close 319 miles of existing roads on these four Districts, restricted dispersed camping and big game retrieval, and has ignored user requests for establishing ATV and motorcycle trails. Once the route designation process ends later this year, it will only be legal to travel on the designated roads and trails. If your favorite road or trail is not in the proposal, we will lose it if you don't take action.
After the 30 day comment period ends, the Forest Service will finish their analysis process and issue a Final Environmental Assessment (EA). Only those people with 'standing' will be able to appeal the EA when it is released.
