cherrystem
 v.— «The area recommended for wilderness contains two inholdings. A 40-acre parcel at the southern end has no developed access and is too rugged for development. A cherrystem road provides access to the 160-acre parcel at Castle Place in the northern portion. This parcel contains a corral, but its primary use is recreational. Neither the corral nor cherrystem road is substantially noticeable. The area recommended for wilderness contains one other cherrystem road, which is not visible from most of the recommended area or the canyon areas.» —“Little Humboldt River Wilderness Study Area” by United States Department of the Interior Bureau of Land Management in Elko, Nevada Nevada Wilderness Study Area Notebooks Oct., 2000.
