Default Swauk Pine Restoration - Liberty



To the Project Team:

This e-mail is to address roads in this project. Following is a brief take on how system roads should be looked at.

Level 1 Roads- Many of these roads need more review as the provide connectivity in the system or do, in fact, have high recreational value. I would urge they be considered for management as trail in many cases.

Level 2 Roads- These roads can, and often do, constitute the backbone of any OHV trail network, and provide non-street legal vehicles access to other system trails, and recreational use for larger 4x4 vehicles.

Level 3 Roads- These should be mixed vehicle use to provide connectivity to all portions of a trail system, and are also key to larger vehicles being able to access trails.

The above referenced road types comprise the heart of an adequate OHV/4x4 system, The Liberty area has been a prime recreation area for OHV for many years, and is a destination for many OHV users for weekend outings. It should be important to consider these users in your process, as well as other affects this project may have aside from OHV that will be covered later.
