Francis Marion Motor Vehicle Use Maps (MVUMs)

Motor Vehicle Use Map Logo

The MVUM is a requirement of the Travel Management Final Rule and reflects travel management decisions on each forest. The MVUM displays National Forest System (NFS) routes (roads and trails) or areas designated open to motorized travel. The MVUM also displays allowed uses by vehicle class (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 publics responsibility to reference the MVUM to determine designated routes for motor vehicle use.

The MVUM will be annually updated to correct mapping errors or discrepancies and update travel decisions. The MVUM is a black and white map with no topographic features. It is not a stand alone map and is best used in conjunction with a Forest Visitor Map or other topographic map. The MVUM is free to the public at each local ranger district office and at the Columbia supervisors Office. The MVUM is available on this website and sections of it may be printed from your home computer.
