Lincoln County Forest Access Plan
Lincoln County Forest Access Plan
The Lincoln County Forest was founded in 1935 and presently consists of 100,708 acres. In the 1930's much of these lands had been cut over and burned and left tax delinquent. Access and the desire for access was very limited at that time, but over the years timber harvesting and recreational use of these lands has increased the number of roads and access points to the County Forest. With this increased use, problems have developed which resource managers and citizens must address. The problem areas that have been identified are user conflict, resource degradation, litter, law enforcement, endangered resources, crowding, etc. This Access Plan was developed to address these problems along with the changing and increasing uses of the Lincoln County Forest.

The Access Plan was developed by a 10 member Citizen Advisory Group and a Lincoln County Forestry, Land and Parks Committee member. The representatives of all groups were elected by their peers. This group was assisted, for technical information, by a support team comprised of DNR and County staff.
