The project area is already scarred not only by 637 miles of existing OHV trails, but also by more than 700 miles of illegal OHV trails. Adding additional trails to this already fragmented landscape would only cause more sediment erosion into waterways, more disruption to wildlife, and more fragmentation of old-growth forests. The USFS initially approved the trail construction plan despite community disapproval and a report by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that details the harm off-road vehicles would have on elk calving grounds.
