FLAGSTAFF, Ariz., April 6, 2018 — The Coconino National Forest will be issuing a revised, free Motor Vehicle Use Map on April 15 that shows all of the roads, trails and areas open to motor vehicle use on the Forest.
The Motor Vehicle Use Map is re-issued each year, is free to the public, and can be downloaded for use on smartphones, tablets and Garmin GPS devices. Copies of the Motor Vehicle Use Map are available at all Coconino National Forest offices, nearby national forest offices, and related businesses.
In addition to hard copy maps, forest visitors can now get a free electronic Coconino National Forest Travel Map, which includes shaded relief topography, game management units, hiking trails, and all designated motorized routes and areas. When used with the Avenza Maps App, this map is GPS-active meaning you can see where you are on the map as you drive or hike on the national forest. Once the map is downloaded, it works without cell coverage. Instructions for how to get the free map and app on your mobile device can be found athttp://go.usa.gov/PEa.
The 2018 Motor Vehicle Use Map and Forest Travel Map include updates and corrections made as a result of public input received over the past year, a list of which is available on the website above. More substantive route and area designation changes requested by the public will be reviewed through the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) planning process.
Coconino National Forest is always interested in your feedback on which routes or areas you think should be added or removed from the Motor Vehicle Use Map. Proposed changes to motor vehicle access on the Forest and links for submitting comments can be found at .
