Shape the Decisions about Motorized Travel in Idaho's Upper Snake

Travel Management Planning is a public process where the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) decides where motorized and non-motorized recreationists can go on your public lands. This is the first time decisions will be made for areas to the west of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks such as Henry's Lake/Island Park, Shotgun Valley, west of North Menan Butte, and Teton Valley. The BLM's decisions about motorized travel will affect Yellowstone wildlife and eastern Idaho hunting and wildlife watching opportunities for the next 20 to 30 years.

Creating designated motorized routes can allow Greater Yellowstone wildlife more freedom to roam. This is your chance to shape the western flank of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.

Our goals:

  • Minimize route densities and avoid redundancy
  • Implement seasonal closures to protect wintering wildlife
  • Provide access to recreational users by carefully selecting appropriate places for each form of recreation (ATV/OHV, mountain bike, and foot travel)
  • Strengthen management and enforcement of route networks
