Colorado Roadless Rule -- USFS

Colorado has proposed a roadless rule (Colorado Roadless Rule) to govern access to wilderness areas within that state. The proposed Colorado Roadless Rule is a regulation specific to Colorado that, when finalized, would provide management direction for 4.2 million roadless acres of National Forest System lands in Colorado. A roadless area is undeveloped land that generally is at least 5,000 acres, and has a number of unique characteristics.

The Forest Service is inviting public comment on the proposed rule and Revised Draft Environmental Impact Statement (RDEIS) which is a product of ongoing and cooperative work with the State of Colorado that dates back to 2005.
