Group Files Lawsuit To Stop Planned ATV Trail in Idaho

A group called the Greater Yellowstone Coalition filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court on July 31 to try to block a new 7.8-mile-long ATV trail in the Caribou-Targhee National Forest in southeastern Idaho.

The coalition, represented by the Western Environmental Law Center, filed the lawsuit to try to stop construction of the Winschell Dugway ATV Trail System in Bonneville County because it’s effort to appeal the decision to build the trail failed.

The group claims wildlife could be negatively impacted by the trail, and “noise and fumes from the ATVs” would have a negative impact on a nearby area that some hope one day will be designated as a Wilderness area by Congress.

A Wilderness designation is one of the strictest forms of public land management. Once Congress designates an area as Wilderness, nearly all forms of non-pedestrian recreation are prohibited, including ATV recreation.

However, the U.S. Forest Service was required to do extensive environmental research into the proposed trail before granting its approval. Officials hope to build the trail as early as late 2013.

The Caribou-Targhee National Forest encompasses 3 million acres.
