MIT letter is not much help for the public. And in most cases, tribal access is allowed under administrative uses due to treaty obligations. Nation to Nation status is a big hammer.

In the northwest most ML-1 roads have been closed since the mid 90's, but with cross country travel allowed they had no way to enforce it. Now with the elimination of cross country, the ML-1's are truly closed and folks are screaming. Just wait til 80-85 % of the ML-2's go away in the next level of Travel Management Planning.

Had a short electronic conversation with Jerry Smith from UFWDA last night, and he is working on a comment now.

Hey Dave....I may have missed it in this thread, but do you have a couple of links to the form letter(s) that the bunny huggers have been using?

Dear Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest,

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on this important issue. The Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest
is deeply important to me, as well as to fish, wildlife, heathy ecosystems, outdoor recreationists and local
communities. It's important that the Forest adopt a sensible and sustainable Travel Management Plan that
moves the forest towards a balanced motorized road and trail system that provides access to the national
forest while protecting and restoring natural resources, including fish and wildlife.

The current Motorized Travel Management Plan proposals are a missed opportunity to holistically address the
issue of creating a sustainable road system on the OWNF that balances motorized access with natural
resource protection and quality non-motorized recreation. And adoption of a final plan is only a first step. Over
8,000 miles of roads currently traverse the OWNF, many of which are of low value to recreation and forest
management, while placing fish and wildlife habitat at high risk. While this plan closes cross country travel and
motorized use on all Level 1 (closed) roads, as highlighted by the travel analysis reports released last year,
much work remains to create a sustainable motorized travel system on the forest that balances access needs
with natural resource protection.

Of the alternatives presented, I believe that a modified Alternative C that protects important fish habitat by
restricting dispersed camping on roads within 300 feet of streams recognized as Critical Fish Habitat while also
opening WATV use on existing open roads on six routes collaboratively identified by forest stakeholders is the
best option as an initial step towards a sustainable motorized road and trail network on the forest. Investments
in implementation, enforcement, and education are vital to the success of a final Travel Management Plan.

Adoption of a final plan must be followed with a forest-wide approach to winter motorized use, as well as
landscape recreation planning efforts and project level decisions to address problem roads that pose a risk to
natural resources and areas on the forest where motorized use (trails and roads) is out of balance with
management goals for watershed protection and habitat such as the Yakima basin including the Snoqualmie
Pass Adaptive Management Area.

As you finalize the Travel Management Plan, please continue to consider how problem roads and motorized
recreation can negatively affect water quality, fish and wildlife habitat, and opportunities for quality nonmotorized
recreation including hiking, horseback riding, wildlife watching, and hunting. Please continue to take
steps to limit negative impacts while appropriately balancing the diverse interests and needs of forest
stakeholders, as well as the needs and health of the forest itself and the fish and wildlife that depend on it.
