(KSL News) -- Environmentalists have lost a bid to get documents they believe may help them prove roads through the San Rafael Swell aren't really roads at all.

Two environmental groups want access to maps and other documents related to the state's claims of roads through the area.

The state attorney general rejected them twice, so they appealed to the Utah Records Committee, which has now rejected them a third time.

The state has threatened to sue the federal Department of Interior claiming the roads in question are legal rights of way through the federal land.
