Maps & Publications

The US Forest Service provides several types of publications for the public. The material is available as brochures, maps, and Recreational Opportunity Guides (ROGs) on subjects such as recreation, sightseeing, wilderness, travel management, and vegetation.

Forest Maps

Klamath NF Atlas ImageForest Service maps are available to help you plan your next adventure and enjoy your next visit.  The maps are available to purchase online at the U.S. Geological Survey Store and at the Klamath National Forest Headquarters and District Offices.

  • Visitor maps for the Klamath and other National Forests and Grasslands provide forest-wide information on attractions, facilities, services, and opportunities.
  • The Klamath National Forest Atlas has full-color, 8.5-inch by 11-inch topographic quadrangle maps at the 1 inch to a mile scale (7.5 minute) in a spiral-bound book for convenience (no refolding!)
  • Wilderness Maps are topographic maps that show natural features such as mountains, valleys, plains, lakes, rivers, and vegetation with contour lines depicting elevation gains and losses.  Each map covers all or part of the wilderness area.
  • Maps for the Pacific Crest Trail are also available.

Digital Maps for Mobile Devices

The PDF Maps Mobile App, developed by Avenza Systems, Inc., is available as a free download for both Apple and Android operating systems.  The app provides access to Forest Service maps, such as Motor Vehicle Use Maps (which are free), national forest atlas pages ($.99 each), and forest visitor maps ($4.99 each).

After downloading your choice of maps, the app shows your location using the GPS in your phone.  Cell service is not required.

After downloading and using the app, let us know what you think at

Motor Vehicle Use Maps (MVUM)

Motor Vehicle Use Maps display National Forest System routes (roads and trails) or areas designated open to motorized travel. The Motor Vehicle Use Map also displays uses allowed by vehicle class (highway-legal vehicles, vehicles less than 50 inches wide, and motorcycles), and seasonal allowances.

Smaller "2015 Color Travel Maps" are also available online.
