Interactive Travel Map

Find roads, trails, and areas designated for motor vehicle use

The interactive travel map shows the National Forest System roads, National Forest System trails, and areas on National Forest System lands that are designated for motor vehicle use. The map is searchable by vehicle class, time of year, route number, and travel mode. You can zoom into an area on a national forest or grassland, see the roads and trails in that area, and find out which ones are open to motor vehicles, and when. You can see rivers, lakes, mountain peaks, campgrounds, and topographic lines. Land ownership is shown by color. You can also print a map of the area you wish to visit.

Work in Progress

The interactive travel map is a work in progress. We are starting with a relatively small number of national forests and grasslands participating, but we hope the number will grow quickly. Participating areas show up in dark green; you will need to zoom in to see the roads and trails.

Do you have comments or suggestions to help improve the map? Please click on the envelope icon in the upper right hand corner of the Interactive Travel Map application to send your ideas to the Forest Service.
