Coconino National Forest issues revised Motor Vehicle Use Map

Posted: Updated:
FLAGSTAFF, AZ (CBS5) -

On Wednesday the Coconino National Forest will issue a revised Motor Vehicle Use Map to show all roads, trails and areas open to motor vehicle use.

The free MVUM is re-issued each year and can be downloaded for use on smart phones and Garmin GPS devices.

Hard copies of the map will be available at all Coconino National Forest Offices, nearby national forest offices, and other local businesses that choose to carry them.

The 2013 MVUM includes numerous updates and corrections made as a result of public input received over the past year.

The Coconino National Forest continues to request public feedback on the map and will use this information to improve the map every year.

"We have received hundreds of comments over the past year about our designated routes on the 2012 Motor Vehicle Use Map," said Mike Dechter, lead planner with the Coconino National Forest. "Many of these comments were extremely helpful at pointing out errors, which we were able to fix on the 2013 version."

Errors on the 2013 MVUM should be reported to forest officials through the "Travel Management Feedback" form, available online at http://go.usa.gov/Qww.
