Santa Fe National Forest Releasing Road, Trail Map

Apr 12, 2013

The Santa Fe National Forest says it's ready to release a new map showing roads in the forest that can be used legally by all-terrain vehicles, motorcycles and highway-legal vehicles.

The "motor vehicle use map" will be released Monday. Free copies will be available at agency offices in Santa Fe, Coyote, Cuba, Las Vegas, Espanola, Jemez Springs and Pecos.

Digital versions of the map will be on the national forest's website.

Federal officials say the map is the product of work that began more than six years.

The Santa Fe National Forest covers about 1.6 million acres in north-central New Mexico. It's one of five national forests in the state.
