Check Out the New Smart Maps for Colorado Public Lands!

Stay The Trail Colorado provides a central webpage where the public, organizations and agencies can download all US Forest Service Motor Vehicle Use Maps (MVUM) for National Forests and Grasslands located in Colorado. These maps are kept up to date as the US Forest Service updates their maps. Funding for this effort is provided by Colorado Parks and Wildlife in the form of grant funding that comes from registration of OHVs in Colorado. Stay the Trail and Great Outdoors Consultants have made the MVUMs “smarter” by making sure they all have geospatial information (the map knows where it’s located in the World) and by providing them in multiple formats. The Stay the Trail statewide “OHV Opportunities Map” is also available.


Geospatial PDFs can also be used on Apple and Android smart phones/tablets using Avenza’s free application call PDF Maps. After the PDF MVUM is downloaded on the mobile device, cellular coverage is not needed to use it. This application shows the current GPS location of the user on the map and allows them to perform some basic GPS recording tasks! The application allows you to show the location of geotagged photos you’ve taken with your mobile device right on the MVUM map. PDF Maps has an online map store that allows users of the app to find MVUMs by name or their current location! This app is being used to distribute free maps for the National Park Service, USGS Topo maps and other free maps. All MVUMs found on the Stay the Trail webpage are now also available through the Avenza map store for free!

Motor Vehicle Use Maps (MVUMs)

The Travel Management Rule announced in 2005 requires each National Forest and Grassland to identify, designate, and map those roads, trails, and areas that are open to motor vehicle use. MVUMs are the legal record of what motorized opportunities are available on lands managed by the US Forest Service. Locate, view, and download motor vehicle use maps here.


BLM Travel Management Maps

Comprehensive travel management is the proactive planning and on-the-ground management of road and trail travel networks. Maps are available in georeferenced Adobe Acrobat PDF (Geo PDF) format, Geo Tiff ZIP format, and Google Earth KMZ format.
