Document Description
The proposed project will 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 four identified areas of the park: the Campground and Visitor Center Area, Lower Coldstream Valley, Upper Coldstream Valley, Lakeview Canyon, and Schallenberger Ridge, and Summit Canyon. These recommendations can be found on pages 28 to 55 of the RTMP.
