The U.S. Forest Service now offers access to variety of visitor maps for people using Android and iOS devices.

U.S. Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell says the new app “makes it easier than ever to plan your visit to a national forest or grassland.” The digital maps are part of USDA’s work toward reaching President Obama’s initiative to create a paperless government that also provides the American public with better, more accessible information.

Online customer surveys also indicated a desire for more online products and information, such as maps. The Forest Service is currently working on the first phase of a website redesign, expected to debut early in 2014, which centers on a map-based tool for planning trips onto our nation’s forests, grasslands and other special places.
