National Forests Asks to Respect Trails, Wildlife

As spring approaches people tired of cabin fever are looking forward to getting into the great outdoors and enjoy traveling around the national forest. As snow melts, roads and trails get wet and muddy and can become rutted and nearly impassable, requiring expensive repairs. The Fishlake national Forest is asking everyone traveling on the Forest to avoid muddy roads and trails. In addition, antler hunters are reminded that seasonal restrictions on motorized travel are in effect on the Fishlake National Forest to protect habitat, wildlife, and roads. Cross-country travel for antler hunting is prohibited.
