|R-1: Heavy Use Areas
These are areas where outdoor recreation is a primary objective. Areas may have highly developed recreational facilities such as checking stations, camp sites with utilities and parking lots. Generally restricted to Considerably Disturbed Areas (V-3) and Badly Disturbed Areas (V-4).
|R-2: Medium Use Areas
These are areas where outdoor recreation is limited or controlled, or where it may be integrated with other uses. Facilities are not highly developed and include trails, rustic shelters, or unimproved campsites.
|R-3: Light Use Areas
These are areas where recreation would be limited to certain areas, or occasional use due to impacts on resources or programs. Trails would be the main recreational feature, and their use may be restricted.
|R-4: Restricted Areas
Areas where outdoor recreation is heavily restricted or controlled, if permitted at all. Trails would be the main feature considered. Areas may be classified “restricted” due to hazardous conditions, fragile ecosystems, limited accessibility or other management practices incompatible with recreational activities.
