This is from BLM's website:Hey Guy's,
I was just doing some research on the walk in areas for this falls hunt and was wondering if the well worn two track roads that we run around on are considered "Established Roads"?
The BLM’s definition of a road doesn’t mean beans if the walk-in area is on private land and the landowner doesn't want you driving all over their place. Again, the OP should consult the Access Yes coordinator in the region he’s hunting. Many walk-ins have the roads signed also.This is from BLM's website:
Established roads as defined by the Board, means any roads or trails which have been graded or constructed to carry vehicular traffic, or on which repeated vehicular traffic has created well defined tracks.
So according to this, well worn two tracks are considered established roads.
Thanks SirIn reading the other posts in this thread, keep in mind that some national forest areas, walk in areas and HMAs require you to stay on "designated roads". Be sure you read the specific rules for the area where you are hunting. However, just because a road is closed does not by itself mean that area is closed. In most cases, you can still walk in or use a horse.
