Motor Vehicle Use Maps (MVUM)

The Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) is a requirement of the 2005 Final Travel Management Rule. The MVUM displays National Forest System (NFS) routes (roads and trails) and areas designated as open to motorized travel. The MVUM also displays allowed uses by vehicle class (ex. highway-legal vehicles, vehicles less than 50 inches wide and motorcycles), seasonal allowances, and provides information on other travel rules and regulations.

Routes not shown on the MVUM are not open to public motor vehicle travel. Routes designated for motorized use may not always be signed on the ground but will be identified on the MVUM.

It will be the public’s responsibility to reference the MVUM to stay on designated routes for motor vehicle use. The MVUM will be updated annually, in January, to correct mapping errors or discrepancies and update travel decisions.  If no corrections or updates are needed, the MVUM will be validated for the new  year by the Ranger District with a red stamp that says: "Valid for Year 20__".

The MVUM provides information by Ranger District on a black and white map. It is a map for legal designations of where you can travel with various motorized vehicles, but for additional reference it is best used in conjunction with a Forest Visitor map or other detailed map.

New since 2012:  In response to public comments,the PSICC will provide free Motor Vehicle Travel Maps (MVTMs) for some districts instead of Motor Vehicle Use Maps (MVUMs), as they become available. The MVTM contains all the information shown on the MVUM, plus additional data that makes it more user-friendly. Because of the strict nationwide requirements to limit what data is shown on an official MVUM, a companion MVTM is being produced for public use that will provide certain navigational and reference information needed when recreating on the national forest. As required by law, the MVUM will be published on this website and will be available for downloading in a digital georeferenced .pdf format and will be available for viewing at the district office. The MVTM will also be available on this website in a digital georeferenced .pdf format, and it will also be available in hardcopy form. The MVTM is free to the public and will be available at the ranger district office and at the Supervisor’s Office.  Georeferenced .tiff versions of MVUMs and/or MVTMs are provided for uploading to Garmin or other GPS units.
