Project Would Reduce Damage To Plants And Soil

The U.S. Forest Service wants to cut down on damage to plants and animals caused by mountain bikes and four-wheelers in its forests.

Forest rangers have proposed an Off-Road Vehicle Trail in the Angelina National Forest. The area is about five miles southeast of Broaddus in San Augustine County.

For more than 30 years, off-road vehicle use has caused damage to endangered species, unique plants, and senisitive soils.

The project involves building close to 60 miles of designated trails for four-wheelers and dirt bikes.
