RAWLINS, Wyo. (AP) - The U.S. Forest Service has started to develop alternative actions for managing travel in the Snowy Range in southern Wyoming.

It is the next step in the West Side Snowy Range Travel Management project.

Alternatives will be derived from the initial proposed action and more than 250 public comments that were received regarding the proposal. Those alternatives will be analyzed in an environmental assessment that will be released later this summer. Additional public comments will be solicited at that time.

Brush Creek/Hayden District Ranger Melanie Fullman tells the Rawlins Daily Times (https://tinyurl.com/koommwu ) that the agency received public comment about access needs, as well as resource concerns.

The project involves the road and trail system on 210,000 acres on the west side of the Snowy Range and Medicine Bow National Forest.
