FREDONIA, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Rangers are setting new rules for where you can drive in the Kaibab National Forest in northern Arizona.

BeginningMonday, September 23, motorized traffic will be restricted to within 30 feet of designated roads,except in camping corridors, which allow vehicles to travel up to 300 feet fromthe side of the road.  Vehicles can also be taken off-road to retrieve firewood, and a legally harvested bison or elk.

The district's new travelmanagement plan designates a motorized system of roads, trails, and areasacross the almost 650,000-acre ranger district, and restricts motorized traveloff the designated routes.

Free maps areavailable at all Kaibab National Forest offices.

Outside of wilderness areas,95 percent of the district will remain within one mile of an open road.

The North Kaibab TravelManagement Project was undertaken in response to the 2005 national TravelManagement Rule, which requires all national forests and grasslands todesignate a motorized travel plan.
