2011 Motor Vehicle Use Map Now Available

Alamogordo, NM (January 28, 2011) – In keeping with the Forest Service multiple use mandate, and to better protect our natural resources, the Lincoln National Forest has updated its successful Motor Vehicle Use Maps. The two maps, one that displays the Smokey Bear and Sacramento Ranger Districts, and the separate Guadalupe Ranger District copy are FREE and now available at all Lincoln National Forest Offices and various locations in southern New Mexico.
The current Motor Vehicle Use Map has only eight minor changes to the designated system of motorized roads and trails compared to the September 2009 version. This makes the 2009 Motor Vehicle Use Map no longer valid. Our website describes the changes that have been made and how the public can remain involved with the travel management process. The Lincoln National Forest encourages the public to provide input for future changes to the system.
The updated purchase nexium website and paper versions of the maps dated January 2011 are current and are the only legal source of information regarding roads and trails designated as open to motorized use.
Stop by the Smokey Bear Ranger District Office at 901 Mechem Drive, Ruidoso, the Sacramento Ranger District Office at 4 Lost Lodge Road, Cloudcroft, the Guadalupe Ranger District Office at 114 S. Halagueno, Carlsbad, and the Supervisor’s Office, 3463 Las Palomas Road, Alamogordo, NM, Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and pick up a copy of the FREE Motor Vehicle Use Maps.
District Customer Service Representatives will provide you copies and help you to identify recreation areas or answer any questions. Smokey Bear memorabilia items are also available for purchase.
