Goals

Right-size the national forest road system

Our long-term goals include right-sizing the national forest road system, which is now more than 375,000 miles of roads—enough to circle the equator fifteen times! Adopting a minimum necessary road system that the agency can afford to maintain will result in improved ecological conditions while providing reliable, consistent recreational access for all forest users.
