2017 Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM)

The Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest is pleased to announce the release of the official 2017 Motor Vehicle Use Map. The MVUMs display the CNNF's designated network of roads and trails for public motor vehicle use. The MVUM is your tool for knowing where you can legally operate your motor vehicle. You may view or download the maps by clicking on the links below. You may begin using the new designations immediately.

Hard copy maps are available by contacting any local Forest Office. Please note that the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest is working on making large scale updates to the MVUM, therefore an addendum to the hard copy 2016 map has been provided outlining changes for 2017. The maps available electronically (posted online and through Avenza) have been updated to reflect the changes identified in the addendum.

With the minimal changes from the 2016 to the 2017 MVUM the Forest chose not to invest in printing a 2017 hard copy map.  The Forest anticipates having a 2018 hard copy map available by spring. This map will include useful navigation tools such as township, range and section lines as well as QR codes embedded on hardcopy maps for easy use.

The maps available electronically offer a better user experience, allowing you to download them to your device and use it as a navigation tool. The cost savings associated with not printing the MVUMs or as many MVUMs each year go directly to maintenance and repair of National Forest system roads and trails.
