Moving on to the next landscape

The next “landscape” is already on the horizon for the San Juan National Forest. The local agency is currently weighing the suitability of off-highway vehicle travel in the Beaver Meadows and Saul’s Creek areas south of Bayfield.

When complete, the process will designate a system of roads and trails for summer motorized vehicle use. Proposed preliminary alternatives are currently available online at: http: //www.fs.fed.us/r2/sanjuan/projects/projects.shtml

Nancy Berry, recreation forester for the Columbine District, commented that now is the time for the full spectrum of users to weigh in on the future of travel in Beaver Meadows/Saul’s Creek. “If people have ideas or desires, now is the time to speak up,” she said.
