  • Adding new trails
  • Adding trail connections
  • Changing allowable trail uses
  • Designating areas where motor vehicle use is restricted during trapping and hunting seasons
  • Closing unsustainable trails

The trail system changes will not include changing forest-wide motor vehicle use classifications. Current state forest motor vehicle use classifications.
