Maps & Publications

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

Motor Vehicle Use Maps (MVUM)

The Forest Service announced a new regulation on November 2, 2005, governing off-highway vehicles and other motor vehicle use on national forests and grasslands. This rule requires each national forest or ranger district to designate those roads, trails and areas open to motor vehicle use. The Motor Vehicle Use Maps are free maps available at any of the Plumas National Forest offices or can be downloaded from this website.

Forest Publications

Our publications fall into a few broad categories: administrative, general, recreation and research publications. Select the "Forest Publications" link for even more guides.
