Hey fellas, here's an update. The FS finally put their revised Alternative maps on the webpage as well as Q & A from the meetings in Placerville and Jackson. You can view them here: http://www.fs.fed.us/r5/eldorado/projects/route/index.shtml (look on the r/h side of page-Revised Alternative's Posted & Open House Participant's Question's) The new maps suck as much as the old maps, it'll take some more time deciphering the differences to really see. Alt. B is still the one to go with, with the most mileage and actually having two areas of the forest inter-connect. Also-here's the latest e-mail concerning the upcoming field trips. Try and go on as many as possible, this will show the FS concern for our sport instead of just lip service. Revised Preliminary Alternatives Now Available: The project website has been updated. Details of major changes to the preliminary alternatives and maps of revised alternatives B, C and D are now available on the Route Designation website. The Alternative A map and mileages are being processed and will be posted as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience. Reminder: Field Trips Start Tomorrow! “This is an excellent opportunity for the Forest and the public to discuss route designation issues on-the-ground, rather than in a meeting hall,” said Ramiro Villalvazo, Eldorado National Forest Supervisor, about the upcoming field trips.
