The Sawtooth National Recreation Area (NRA) is announcing the availability of the proposed action for the Big Wood Travel Management Plan. The purpose of this plan is to bring road and trail use into compliance with the Forest Plan, laws, and regulations; to provide a system of roads and trails for public access and recreational travel; to manage resource impacts that are occurring due to the use of roads and trails; and to rehabilitate non-system routes identified as a problem to natural and cultural resources (soil, water, fish, plants, wildlife, heritage, etc.).
This proposal would revise the existing Motorized Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) for the Big Wood Watershed to meet changed conditions. The majority of routes represented on the existing MVUM would remain open to the public. Some new routes would be added, while others would be closed and naturalized or restricted to administrative or other authorized uses. Other changes include installing barriers or gates on ski trails, designating dispersed camping areas, upgrading and adding parking areas, converting roads to non-motorized trails, rerouting one motorized trail, and reducing the length of routes that encroach upon sensitive areas. This project is being analyzed in compliance with the 36 CFR 212 Travel Rule.
