Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM)

Visitors using roads and trails on the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest will need a map that shows what type of motor vehicles they can use on the forest and where they can go. The Motor Vehicle Use Map displays designated travel routes (roads and trails) suitable for motorized use, dispersed camping, seasonal restrictions, and travel rules and regulations. The use of motor vehicles is prohibited outside of the designated system. Roads and will no longer be signed in the field as to permissible uses.

The map is a result of the 2005 National Travel Management Rule requiring each national forest to create a safe and sustainable road system providing access while protecting natural resources. Motor vehicles are not permitted on routes not shown on the MVUM. The rule does not apply to snowmobiles.

Mixed use of licensed and unlicensed vehicles on forest roads and cross-country travel off of designated routes is prohibited on the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest.

The map is black and white with no topographic features. The MVUM should be used in conjunction with the forest visitor or district maps to navigate on the forest. The MVUM is free at ranger district offices or online. Contact ranger districts for more information. The MVUM will be updated annually.
