Travel Management on the Tonto National Forest: Draft Record of Decision
On November 9, 2005, the Forest Service published travel management regulations governing off-highway vehicles and other motor vehicles on national forests and grasslands. This is referred to as the Final Travel Management Rule. This final rule was developed in response to the substantial increase in use of off-highway vehicles on National Forest System lands and related damage to forest resources caused by unmanaged off-highway vehicle use over the past 20 to 30 years. The regulations implement Executive Orders 11644 and 11989 regarding off-road use of motor vehicles on Federal lands.
