Purchasing Forest Maps

The official Monongahela National Forest visitor map has been recently updated and is tear-resistant and waterproof. They can be ordered from the following locations: 

The 2017 Forest Visitor Map is scaled 1/2" to the mile. One half of the Forest is shown on one side and the other half is displayed on the reverse side. These maps include streams, roads, county lines, communities, trails and recreation sites but do not have contour lines. These maps are suitable for auto touring, locating sites, and general use but are not detailed enough for backcountry travel.

In an effort to help offset the pricing increase for volume sales, discount pricing is available on sales of 10 or more of maps with the same title. Discounted maps are only available when purchased through the NFMS.

Topographic maps are also available for purchase. These maps do include contour lines and are detailed enough for backcountry travel. 


Motor Vehicle Use Maps

The Monongahela National Forest Motor Vehicle Use Map was developed under the new Travel Management Rule (70 Federal Register 68264), dated November 9, 2005 (36 CFR Parts 212, 261 and 295) which revised regulations regarding travel management on National Forest System lands. The map displays what types of motor vehicle are currently allowed and where.
