(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Groups representing snowmobilers and recreational-vehicle users have appealed federal decisions to restrict access into Logan Canyon.

The Utah Shared Access Alliance and others filed an administrative appeal over the management plan for the one-point-two-(M)million-acre Wasatch Cache National Forest yesterday.

The new plan was a disappointment to environmentalists who had hoped it would address future conflicts, and to off-roaders over closing off snowmobiling in popular areas of Logan Canyon.

In its appeal, the groups contends the plan contains little justification or scientific analysis to support the restrictions.

Forest officials closed off snowmobiling in parts of Logan Canyon due to deer and elk winter range.
