Kaibab National Forest wants to open more land to motorized vehicles

The Kaibab National Forest wants to create 400-foot wide motorized camping corridors along 223 miles of Forest roads in its Williams and Tusayan Districts. That would essentially open up a 400-foot-wide motorized free-for-all. For comparison, the distance from Prescott to Tucson is 216 miles. Imagine all the cars that could pull off the highways between Prescott and Tucson, and then imagine those cars driving off road on the National Forest.

Do you think this is an unnecessary threat to the soils, plants, wildlife, and water of the Kaibab National Forest?  Learn more here and comment here.
