Motorized Travel Management

The Forest Service released the final rule for managing recreational Off Highway Vehicle use on the National Forests in November 2005. The Rule provides a framework for each National Forest to identify and designate roads, trails, and areas suitable for motorized use, and prohibits use of motor vehicles off the designated system. 

The outcome of this planning effort was to publish a Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) for each District that shows a designated system for motorized use. Motor vehicle use on the Flathead National Forest is allowed only on designated routes or areas displayed on the map.

The designations shown on these maps are effective as of the date stamped or printed on the front cover.
