To protect the environment and reduce management costs, it is necessary to restrict vehicles on District lands. If entrance to a tract is restricted by the placement of a gate or cable, the user may request a special use authorization (SUA) to gain additional access. SUAs grant additional vehicle access or permission to use District lands for certain activities and are free and available from the District. A District land manager will gladly assist you in determining if your request is for an approved use.
