Maps & Publications


To obtain passes, permits, and maps, please visit your local or closest supervisor’s office or the Southwestern Region’s Regional Office, located in Albuquerque.

  • Make sure that the map, permit, or pass you need is available at your location- not all of the maps, permits, and passes are available at every location.
  • At the Southwestern Region’s Regional Office, you can buy the interagency America the Beautiful national pass, maps and quad maps of national forests located in Arizona and New Mexico, as well as for national grasslands in Oklahoma and Texas. 

Maps can be ordered over the phone with a credit card or by mail; please send check or money order, payable to “USDA Forest Service”, along with the order form (pdf) to:

Motor Vehicle Use Maps (MVUM)

Motor Vehicle Use Maps (MVUMs) show which routes (roads and trails) are open to motor vehicle travel, what types of vehicles they are open to, and what season they are open. The published hard copy MVUM is the legal document-of-record and is available, free of charge, in the Forest Supervisor’s office. The MVUM is the key to understanding each district's motorized transportation system and can be used in conjunction with the visitor map to determine which roads are open, and how far you are allowed to drive off of the road. Various travel aids/maps (for select Smartphones and GPS units) are available below as supplements to the MVUM, to help you make sure you know which routes are open to motorized use.
