MOUNTAIN HOME, Idaho (AP) - The U.S. Forest Service plans to reopen motorized trails in a part of the Boise National Forest that have been closed since a 2013 wildfire.

The Times-News reports (http://bit.ly/1FqS1gV) in a story on Thursday that the agency plans to open Danskin Mountain Off-Highway Vehicle Area this spring.

The 2013 Pony Complex of fires burned bridges, culverts and signs in the area.

The Forest Service says loss of vegetation and increased trail erosion complicated cleanup.

Stephaney Church of the Forest Service says staff, volunteers and the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation worked to repair damage.

The area about 29 miles east of Boise has about 160 designated motorized-use trails.
