Motor Vehicle Use Maps

  

2014 Coconino National Forest Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) now available! This map, dated April 15, 2014 includes updated information on the roads, trails, and areas open for motor vehicle use on the Forest. Here’s how to get it!

 

 

The Coconino National Forest signed a Record of Decision on the Travel Management Project on September 28, 2011. This decision and the Final Environmental Impact Statement are available on our website here: Travel Management Environmental Impact Statement. Implementation of these new rules started on May 1, 2012.

The 2014 MVUM, released April 15, 2014; replaces the 2013 MVUM and will remain in effect until superseded by next year’s MVUM. A list of changes/updates from the 2013 map to the 2014 map is  found here.

–The MVUM identifies those roads, trails, and areas designated for motor vehicle use under 36 CFR 212.51 for the purpose of enforcing prohibition at 36 CFR 261.13.
 

The MVUM is the legal document that shows where it is legal to drive a motor vehicle. Having an MVUM is as necessary for motorized travel as having game proclamations when going hunting.

 

Although other travel aids or more detailed maps may be used in conjunction with the MVUM, it is the MVUM itself which is the reference document for where it is legal to drive a motor vehicle.

 

The MVUM is re-published every year, so, please be sure that you are using the most current version when driving on the National Forest. The April 15, 2012 MVUM will be replaced by the May 1, 2013 MVUM.

 

If you would like a hard copy of the current MVUM, it is available upon request at any of our forest offices or by calling the Supervisor's Office at 928-527-3600.

Please note:

  •  The MVUM only designates where you take your motorized vehicle - you can still camp where you used to. The dot notations on the MVUM indicate corridors where vehicles can be driven off-road up to 300 ft to accomodate "car camping." On roads without the dot notations, you can park your vehicle up to one vehicle's length (approximately 30 feet) off the road and either camp there, walk up further from the road to set up camp.  

  • Changes between the 2013 and 2014 MVUM maps:
    • The 2014 map includes additional road designations that were approved through recent National Environmental Policy Act planning decisions including
      • New seasonal road designations for access to the Peaks Hunt Unit
      • Additional motorized OHV trails between Flagstaff and Munds Park
