Black and White Motor Vehicle Use Thumbnail MapMotor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM)

An MVUM is a free map displaying the roads, trails, and areas open to motor vehicle use in the national forest. This legal document is as necessary for motorized travel in a national forest as having game proclamations when going hunting. Although other travel aids or more detailed maps may be used in conjunction with the MVUM, it is the MVUM itself which is the reference document for where it is legal to drive a motor vehicle. The MVUM is republished every year, so please be sure that you are using the most current version when driving on the National Forest. If you would like a free hard copy of these maps, they are available upon request at the corresponding national forest office, or you may download the PDF version.




Trail MapsSnapshot of trail maps

The Intermountain Region offers several types of trail maps, many specific to recreational activities such as cross-country skiing, backpacking and snowmobiling. However, availability varies by Forest. Please contact your local Forest Service Office or area of interest for additional information.

Historic maps are snapshots of the nation's physical and cultural features at a particular time. Maps of the same area can show how an area looked before development and provide a detailed view of changes over time. Historical maps are often useful to scientists, historians, environmentalists, genealogists and others researching a particular geographic location or area. Select the desired state and scale from the drop-downs. The earliest maps are found at scales no longer used, such as 1:48000. You can download a PDF of the map you select.



We have provided a wide variety of publications available to download. However, content, availability, and assortment vary greatly by Forest.  If you do not find what you are looking for, check the forest web site or contact contact your local forest or area of interest.
