Ashley National Forest Comment Period Needed by 11/8

November 7th, 2019

Comments are needed by November 8th for the Ashley National Forest. The forest service is in the process of updating there Land Management Plan. Please take a minute to leave a respectful comment about how you use the backcountry, especially the Ashley range by Vernal. The more comments they receive emphasizing snowmobiling, the more importance they will place on it. In your comments, please explain any uses of how you have used the Ashley range and anything you would like to see. For example, you could state:

The Ashley National Forest provides great opportunities for motorized and non-motorized recreation. I strongly support leaving the forest open for multiple forms of recreation, and I use the forest for snowmobiling during the winter and camping in the summer with ATVs. I feel it’s important to leave the area open for winter snowmobiling, which allows access to so much range during a long portion of the year. I would love to see increased trail markings and usage, along with better services including trailhead marking, winter parking, and continued warming huts.”
