Trail Maps and Information
Stay The Trail Colorado provides a central place 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.

About Stay the Trail
Our mission is to reinforce and highlight responsible OHV use, and to modify and mitigate irresponsible use in an effort to minimize resource damage on public land. Our goal is to create a statewide culture of responsible OHV use.
We are primarily funded by grants from the OHV registration program managed by Colorado Parks and Wildlife. Your contributions help us spread the word of responsible OHV use when visiting Colorado public lands.
The Stay the Trail Education & Stewardship Alliance is a 501(c)(3) educational organization. We have several employees, a Board of Directors, and Ex-Officio Advisors who lead our team of OHV enthusiasts.
Stay The Trail empowers trail users with the education and resources needed to ensure that we are good stewards. It’s not just warm and fuzzy. Good stewardship helps us keep our trails and gives us the street cred to create new opportunities!
