Effective Monday, the Santa Fe National Forest will release the Motor Vehicle Use Map that shows the public where it is legal to drive motorized vehicles on the forest.
The map is a result of work that began over six years ago in response to National Guidelines known as the 2005 Travel Management Rule, requiring all national forests in the country to evaluate their motorized system of roads and trails.
“After years of extensive analysis and public involvement, the MVUM (Motor Vehicle Use Map) displays the forest’s designated network of roads and trails for public motor vehicle use, showing the public where they can legally ride,” said Bruce Hill, spokesperson for the Santa Fe National Forest.
Although other travel aids or more detailed maps may be used in conjunction with the MVUM, it is the MVUM itself which is the reference document for where it is legal to drive a motor vehicle.
