Existing forest roads that were constructed in the past are often called "Legacy Roads." Because the science and understanding of Best Management Practices was not as evolved then as it is now, these roads can be very problematic to use, maintain, or upgrade. Can you think of three factors that might be considered "red flags" when deciding whether or not to use a Legacy Road?
(Note: Legacy road considerations are discussed in the Texas Forest Service's "Road BMPs" Workshop - visit the Texas Forestry Association website for a schedule of course offerings)
