Start Preamble


Forest Service, USDA.




The Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest is proposing to begin charging a $5.00 daily user fee or accept the $20 annual user vehicle sticker at the Wanoka Trailhead based upon other Forest Service multiple use trailhead facilities across the Forest. The Wanoka Trailhead on the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest will provide a much needed trailhead facility for the public to utilize to enjoy the motorized and non-motorized trails and routes north and south of US Highway 2. This site will also assist in helping to increase the amount of visitation to the local communities of Ashland, Drummond, Barnes, Cable, Delta, and Iron River. The funds collected at the Wanoka Trailhead will be used for the year round operation and maintenance of this site. Start Printed Page 33761People are invited to comment on this proposal.


The Wanoka Trailhead was posted for a one year comment period pertaining to the implementation of use fees on March 18, 2009. All comments must be received no later than July 15, 2010 so they can be compiled, analyzed and shared with the Region 9 Recreation Resource Advisory Committee.
