The Pike and San Isabel National Forests (PSI) cover over 2 million acres in central Colorado, including 20 of the state’s peaks over 14,000 feet in elevation. The PSI maintains roughly 2,500 miles of roads and trails across this rugged terrain and is in the process of determining how many of these routes will be open to motorized vehicles.
As a result of a 2015 settlement agreement, the PSI is preparing an EIS to consider which roads and trails should be open to public motorized vehicle use. The NEPA process began on July 25, 2016, and has included scoping related to a DEIS.
