National Forest Visitor Maps

Visitor maps for each national forest and grassland provide forest-wide information on attractions, facilities, services, and opportunities. These maps are available to purchase from individual forests, from the National Forest Map Store (406-329-3024) and retail outlets. 

Visitor maps for the Manti-La Sal National Forest were revised in 2013.  In addition to the sources listed above, these maps are for sale at local Manti-La Sal National Forest offices in Price, Ferron, Ephraim, Moab, and Monticello in Utah.

A free Visitor guide for the Manti-La Sal National Forest is also available.  It contains recreation sites, history, a basic map and other valuable information.
