The Inyo National Forest issued the draft copy of their Travel Analysis Report. They did a science based analysis of the 1564 Level 2 (High Clearance Vehicle dirt roads) that they maintain. They claim that only 251 of those roads provide a benefit for "Dispersed Recreation" (all OHV activities, hunting, fishing,rock collecting, photography, mountain bikers, climbers etc.). They claim that 795 roads are "Not Needed" because they provide very little benefit. Many of these roads are short roads to scenic areas, camping spots, picnic spots, wild flowers and wildlife viewing etc. More than 75% are less than a mile long.


The Inyo National Forest is almost two million acres and stretches from Mono Lake to Coso Junction. To enjoy the beauty of this vast area it requires adequate access to many areas.


It is very important that we tell them about the benefit we get from four wheeling in the Inyo National Forest, or any forest.


Attached are comments submitted on behalf of California 4 Wheel Drive Association.
