Oregonís Ochoco National Forest is preparing a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) relative to the Ochoco Summit Trail System. The Forest had already issued a Final EIS and a Draft Record of Decision for this project in 2014, but these were withdrawn following the Bailey Butte Fire that burned through part of the project area. The approximately 301,580-acre project area is in close proximity to the city of Prineville, Oregon.

The 2011 Deschutes and Ochoco Travel Management Plan changed the opportunity for OHV use on the Ochoco National Forest. Prior to the decision, OHVs could legally be operated anywhere on the Forest except where specifically prohibited. The 2011 decision reduced the recreation opportunity previously available to OHV recreationists. In order to offset this reduction in OHV opportunity, the Ochoco National Forest Supervisor decided to pursue creating and designating a trail system intended for OHV operation.
 
There is currently only one motorized trail in a forested setting on the Ochoco National Forest, the Green Mountain Trail, which is just over 8 miles. In addition, the Deschutes and Ochoco Travel Management ROD identified specific roads as open for motorized mixed use.
 
The SEIS analyzes five alternatives related to the development of a trail system. Alternative 2, which was the proposed action, would create a 170-mile trail network, including mixed-use roads, with 124 miles of OHV trails. However, under the SEIS, the preferred alternative is Alternative 5, which would create a 135-mile trail network, including mixed-use roads, with 105 miles of OHV trails. The preferred alternative is a response to the wildfire and to suggestions provided during the Objection Period following the release of the Final EIS in 2014.
 
Comments
It is important that OHV enthusiasts remain involved in the designation process by contacting Forest staff. Comments on the SEIS are due by April 3, 2016. Comments may be submitted to Ochoco Summit Trail System ID Team, 3160 NE 3rd Street, Prineville, OR 97754.
