Restoration in Action: The First Five Years of the Legacy Roads and Trails Program

Friday, April 12, 2013


The Legacy Roads and Trails Remediation Program (Legacy Roads and Trails) is a cornerstone of watershed restoration in our National Forests. Created to fix environmental problems resulting from the Forest Service’s extensive road and trail system, Legacy Roads and Trails has reduced stream pollution, restored fish and wildlife habitat, created jobs, and improved essential roads to ensure safe access. This report highlights Legacy Roads and Trails accomplishments during its first five years. It provides a general accounting of appropriated funds and spotlights a sampling of projects from across the country. As illustrated here, Legacy Roads and Trails is a mission-critical program for the Forest Service that deserves continued investment.
