Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints


	The Manti-La Sal National Forest, Moab Ranger District is completing
a Decision Memo for Nyland Access Road and would like to consider your
comments or concerns before making a decision. The proposal is to
authorize Nyland to occupy National Forest Service lands in order to
construct a private access road approximately 190 feet long by 16 feet
wide beginning at Forest Road 0129 and ending at the Forest Boundary. 
The road would be located approximately 1 mile west of Dark Canyon
Lake in the La Sal Mountains in Section 18, T27S, R25E, SLB&M.  A
locked gate would be installed at the junction with the Forest System
road to allow access by authorized users only.  An environmental
review is currently being conducted.  Experts, specializing in natural
resource areas such as vegetation, wildlife, cultural resources, range
and other natural resources, will submit a report analyzing effects to
their area of expertise.  As a result, design features will likely be
added to the project to minimize the environmental impacts.  For maps
and other information, please go to our website at:

CFR part 215 regulations.
