New Interactive Forest Map

Discover the Forest with this hidden gem - try the new Forest Map to locate roads, campgrounds, trails (soon) and other recreation sites on the forest. Our map allows you to create your own customized georeferenced PDF for mobile use. 
Here’s how:
• Using a PC, zoom into an area of interest on a national forest
• Using the tools (top right), choose ‘Create/Print PDF’
• Type a name, any name. For example, “My Memorial Day Trip” and add a few notes, if desired.
• Click “Submit”. Let the PDF generate, which takes a few seconds.
• When the process completes, a “View PDF” link appears. Click to open.
• Save the PDF on your PC and email it to your mobile device.
• Using a mobile device, open the PDF using Avenza or other app.
Because your customized map is a georeferenced PDF, your phone or mobile device’s GPS chip will plot your location on the map whether you have connectivity or not (device must have a GPS chip).
