 Flagstaff, Ariz., Apr. 10, 2015, For Immediate Release — Coconino National Forest will issue an updated and revised Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) on April 15 which shows all of the roads, trails and areas open to motorized vehicles on the national forest.

            The map is free to the public and can be downloaded for use on smartphones, tablets and Garmin GPS devices. Hard copies of the MVUM will be available at all Coconino National Forest offices and many local businesses.

In addition to hard copy maps, forest visitors can now get a free electronic MVUM, which is a color map with shaded relief topography, game management units, hiking trails, and all designated motorized routes and areas. Using this electronic map on one’s smartphone through the Avenza PDF Maps app incorporates GPS location, meaning one can see where they are on the map as they drive or hike on the national forest. Instructions for how to get the free map app on your mobile device can be found at http://go.usa.gov/PEa  (case sensitive).

The 2015 MVUM includes a number of updates and corrections made as a result of public input received over the past year. More substantive route changes requested by the public will need to be reviewed through the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process. The forest expects to propose changes to the system of designated motor vehicle routes and areas in late 2015 to begin the NEPA process.

If you discover errors on the 2015 MVUM, notice problems with road signs on the Coconino National Forest, or have any general comments about motorized use policies or designations, please visit the website and complete the “Feedback” form, at http://go.usa.gov/Qww
