Plumas NF Winter Travel Management

The Plumas National Forest has issued a Notice of Intent and Proposed Action for the designation of snowmobile use on forest land. This is the last of five National Forests doing such designation as a result of a lawsuit brought by Snowlands. To learn about their proposed plan and how to submit comments, see our Plumas winter travel managment page.

The deadline for public comments has been extended to November 30, 2015.
