(BOISE) – A federal judge has temporarily closed down access to six off-road trails in the Salmon-Challis National Forest. The order follows a February ruling that found that the U.S. Forest Service had ignored evidence of significant damage to the trails caused by off-road vehicles. Officials say the trails will remain closed until forest managers can draft rules aimed at better protecting soil, water, and vegetation from ATV’s and other vehicles.
