What is a National Conservation Recreation Area?
A National Conservation and Recreation Area is a new designation. The force of law directs the US Forest Service to manage the public lands contained within the designation in a certain way after careful review and public engagement.
For example: ski area projects (lifts, parking areas, roads, etc) would not be allowed outside the current boundaries of the resorts. Road building on public lands, would not be permitted. Existing trails system and uses will not be impacted.
