USFS to present trail, road facts on new travel management plan

A series of public meetings opens a comment period on the U.S. Forest Service’s pending Travel Management Plan for the White River Forest.

The White River is seeking comment on how best to manage its road and trail system to meet the needs of users. Within this plan, decisions will be made on where and when to allow all types of summer and winter transportation – including motorized, mechanized (bikes) and foot travel, which includes horses and llamas, Forest Service officials said.

This initial comment period on the management will close Oct. 31.

The local meeting schedule includes:

Sept. 16 – Eagle County Office in Basalt, 6:30-9 p.m.;

Sept. 17 – Summit County Middle School auditorium, 6-9 p.m.; and

Sept. 18 – Avon Public Library (Beaver Creek Room), 6-9 p.m.

In addition to a presentation and question and answer period, the meetings will also include an opportunity to provide written comments. Maps of the current road and trail system will also be on display.

For more information call Vinnie Picard at the White River National Forest, (970) 945-3206.
