Document Description
The proposed project described in the Initial Study will assess and approve the RTMP and actions identified therein. The RTMP conveys goals, actions, and priorities to implement a comprehensive road and trail management program, prioritizes actions, and directs limited funding. It provides management recommendations (for identified roads, trails, and non-system routes) to increase visitor safety and enjoyment, while protecting natural and cultural resources. The final plan includes over-arching recommendations that apply to the park’s entire trail system, such as the need to make all new trails and trail alterations accessible to the extent possible, remove all non-system trails, and maintain all trails to the appropriate standard. Refer to Section 6 of the RTMP for a detailed list of parkwide and area-specific recommendations with accompanying maps. In summary, area-specific recommendations were made for three identified areas of the park: Discovery Center/Telegraph Canyon Area, Bane Canyon/Rolling M Ranch Area, and Santa Ana River/Coal Canyon Area. These recommendations can be found on pages 29 to 49 of the RTMP. Specific actions covered by this IS/ND are outlined in Section 2.7, along with RTMP actions that may require additional environmental review.
