The Rim Butte OHV Jeep Trail Project would designate a motorized Class II trail system as part of the Deschutes National Forest?s strategy for implementing the Forest Service?s National 2005 Travel Management Rule. The Deschutes National Forest proposes to designate approximately 30 miles of Class II OHV trails in the Rim Butte area to provide a loop trail system with a variety of technical challenge levels. Designated routes would be located on areas of existing disturbance, such as roads or skid trails, as much as possible. New trail would be designated in some locations and require minimal construction or vegetative disturbance to define the trail tread. Obstacles would be left to create technical difficulty and minimize safety concerns associated with access by non-Class II motorized vehicles.
Project is bounded by Forest Road 2121 on the west; Forest Road 22 on the south; Forest Road 2230 on the east; and the Newberry National Volcanic Monument on the north.
