 Olympic National Forest Proposes OHV Trail System In North Fork Calawah Watershed

by Jon Crowley on 25/04/12 at 6:35 am

The Pacific Ranger District of the Olympic National Forest is proposing to construct and maintain an OHV (Off-Highway Vehicle) trail system in the North Fork Calawah watershed. The Proposed Action is the development of a trail system and staging area for OHV use in the Bonidu project area (see map here). The trail system would utilize both existing system roads and user-created trails. There would be no cross-country travel, and user-created trails in the project area that are not part of this proposal would be closed / rehabilitated. The system would be designed for year-round use.

The public is invited to participate in the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process as Forest Service personnel prepare an environmental analysis. Comments in support or in opposition are welcome. If you have information you believe the Forest may not be aware of, or if you have specific concerns regarding potential effects of this Proposed Action, please send your comments in writing to Tim Davis, Project Leader, at Olympic National Forest, 1835 Black Lake Blvd SW, Olympia, WA 98512, or by email to
Please respond by May 21, 2012. Significant issues that are identified may be used to develop alternatives to the Proposed Action. Respondents will be notified when the draft Environmental Assessment is available for the thirty-day review and comment period. If you have no input at this time, but would like to remain informed, please let us know.

If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Tim Davis (project leader) at 360-956-2375 or email
