Forest Service maps being recalled because of errors
A recent revision of the Routt National Forest visitor map contains some errors in land ownership. The maps have been available since the last week in December. The maps with errors have a blue cover and are dated 2004 on the front panel; the old maps have a green cover and are dated 1996. Anyone who purchased a blue map during December or January can return it to the place it was purchased and exchange it for an old map or a corrected new version when they become available in the next couple of months. Anyone who purchased the new map with the blue cover should not rely on it for Colorado State Public Use land boundaries, as some of them are incorrect.
