#5139 Coronado National Forest Announces Proposed Changes to Sierra Vista Ranger District Motorized Travel System
The Coronado National Forest, Sierra Vista Ranger District, has announced that it is seeking comments on proposed changes to it motorized travel system and has prepared a preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA), pursuant to the Forest Service’s Travel Management Rule. The proposed project is located on Forest lands in southeastern Arizona in Cochise, Santa Cruz, and Pima Counties. The proposed changes would result in a system of designated routes where motorized use is allowed on the district. Motorized use off the designated system of routes without alternative authorization would continue to be prohibited.

While the Proposed Action in the EA would add some routes, including user-created routes, it would result in an overall net decrease of 159.98 miles of roads to the Sierra Vista Ranger District transportation system. If the modified proposed action is approved, the system would have the following:


533.65 miles of National Forest System roads open to all vehicles;
23.16 miles of closed roads;
59.27 miles of roads restricted to administrative or permitted use only;
0.73 new miles of motorized trails for vehicles less than or equal to 50”;
2.68 new miles of motorized trails for vehicles greater than or equal to 50”; and
6.51 miles of non-motorized trails would be designated in the proposed changes.
