Park Vision: Roads

Roads can ruin a natural area, scarring its beauty and interfering with the way of life of its natural inhabitants. However, if properly designed and built, roads can provide access to the beauty of portions of our national parks to those who might not otherwise have any opportunity whatsoever to view it. Some of the best and most well known of these roads can be seen in this document.
