Warm and wet spring weather means roads and trails are getting muddy.

The U.S. Forest Service and other trail and road mangers have reminded the public over the past weeks to consider the state of the trail or road. Walking, biking or driving on soft and unstable road or trails surfaces can cause long-term damage, while also increasing the risk of getting stuck or slipping.
