From the Billings Gazette:

_Building an illegal trail and clearing trees in the Gallatin National Forest will cost a Livingston man five months in federal prison, a fine and $25,000 restitution. . . .

Forest Service officials determined that [Francis Leroy] McLain built a 6-foot wide ATV trail that was a mile and a half long. Agency officials estimated it would cost about $7,600 to dispose of downed trees that McLain had piled up and $25,948 to restore the land and prevent erosion.
