These lands also play host to more than 6,000 miles of wild and scenic rivers that offer leisurely rides passed awe-inspiring scenery or breathtaking rollercoaster-like rides down rapids. We are your year-round destination, including skiing on one of the 122 ski areas in the winter, photographing the bursting colors of wildflowers, cooking s’mores around the campfire in the summer or watching leaves change colors in the fall.

Great tool for those looking to explore the national forests. It's not as smart as google maps but is way more detailed. Half of the roads I've been on didn't even load on maps. Feature requests as of 7/29: Highlighting routes, can already highlight individual roads but not more than one at a time. Dispersed camping dots, slightly annoying that I need to stop by the park ranger office but not a deal breaker. Be able to orientat the app upsidedown.

Large and often difficult to find what I'm looking for, but when I get there, it does provide a lot of useful info: motor vehicle use maps - MVUs - old logging roads, for the most part; campgrounds; areas where primitive camping is allowed - which they call Dispersed camping; picnic areas, etc. Because it's such a huge file, I usually uninstall it after I've found what I need, and reinstall it when I need it again.

Keep improving! USFS created a very intuitive, user-friendly app, and solicits feedback! I love: - Speedy, smooth displays of map, while zooming/panning. - Forest Road descriptions with a tap on/near the road!! See what vehicles are allowed, whether high clearance is required, rough or paved, etc. Can't get that on USFS Motor Vehicle Use maps. - Touch & Hold "zoom circle" lets me read fine print, like road names, on maps. REQUEST: Make map Legend available at all times via button tap.
