RECREATION GROUPS SEEK TO ENTER COLORADO TRAIL LAWSUIT

This lawsuit comes in the broader context of travel planning throughout the National Forest System.  In 2005, the agency promulgated a nationwide rule requiring designation of roads, trails and areas for motorized access.  The resulting agency decisions have spawned lawsuits in Montana, California, Idaho, Oregon, North Carolina and elsewhere.  Trail-based recreation interests have frequently participated in those actions.

"Our groups have long championed effective recreation management," said John Bongiovanni, a COHVCO Director.  "We are far from satisfied with the outcomes on these Forests. It is the motorized recreation community who apparently shoulders the burden of defending trails long used by all.  It is essential our role continue when preservationists move the dialogue behind courtroom doors," Bongiovanni concluded.
