The National Park Service Finalizes Plan for Off Road Vehicles in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park

The National Park Service is out with a final plan for managing off road vehicle use on popular trails in Wrangle St. Elias national park. The plan and environmental impact statement cover trails in the northern part of the park and preserve, along the Nabesna Road, east of Glennallen. Park Service planner Bruce Rogers says the documents reflect settlement of a lawsuit brought by environmental groups which questioned the agencies adherence to its own rules regarding consideration of the impacts before issuing permits for recreational off road vehicle use.
