In Oregon, the PCT traverses several desiginated Wilderness Areas, so in those, really no effect.

However, in the Santiam Pass area, there are a few designated OHV and snowmobile routes (depending on the season of use) that either cross or parallel the PCT. And am sure there are other OHV areas, primarily for ATV's and motorcycles further south in the state that could be impacted.

Something for us to keep an eye on in Oregon and Washington, at least to grandfather in what is there, or squash it completely outside of designated Wilderness.

That over half mile wide buffer would affect anything in future planning, and possibly existing, outside of designated Wilderness (or other designations where motorized use is not permitted) in any of the three states.
