Road Trip Report Form

Friends For Public Use Road Report

When working with FFPU on forest roads wearing long pants, work boots, safety vest and hardhat is required by the Darrington Ranger District. To begin your forest road report drive to the beginning of the road that you will be reporting on and zero your odometer. You will now record your observations and work on a mile by mile. Example: you are driving along and come to a log blocking a ditch at mile 5.1. You will write down the mileage, take a photo of the existing problem and fix it if you can. After this problem as been fixed take a post photo of your work. Make a note about this location if there as been ongoing road damage occurring due to the problem. We take before and after photos so that various forest service departments can see the road situations that are occurring and even though the roadbed may show signs of some erosion that this problem has been resolved.
