Free motor vehicle maps available for forest
New maps showing motorized routes on the Routt National Forest are now available free of charge at U.S. Forest Service offices in Steamboat Springs, Yampa, Kremmling and Walden, and the Forest supervisor's office in Laramie, Wyo.
"The maps, along with signs on the ground, will help motorized users know where and when they are allowed to travel and with what types of vehicles," Forest Supervisor Mary Peterson said. "It is the responsibility of motorized travelers to be aware of the legal designated routes and stay on them to ensure responsible use and enjoyment of the national forest."
Information and maps are also available at www.fs.fed.us/r2/mbr/recreation/travel_management/mvumindex.shtml. New motorized use maps for the Medicine Bow National Forest and the Thunder Basin National Grassland will be available in 2008 and 2009, respectively.
