Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.National forest roads are public land and public property. Those roads, therefore, are not private but public. A citation can be given on public land to operators of vehicles or other violators. My apologies, but going purely on the facts that you listed, there is nothing improper or illegal in citing your friend in this instance.Good luck.
