Each forest unit is required to make available, at no cost, copies of their MVUMs. They are generally available at any Forest Service office as well as online.
In most cases the online version (PDF) is too large to print at home. Therefore obtaining a printed copy is probably a better action.
The Forest Service has made their MVUMs available to be used on mobile devices in order to reduce the need for printing MVUMs. These are NOT just PDF versions. They have additional capabilities to make them usable in the field. They do NOT require cell service as they use the satellite capabilities built into most mobile devices.
This document explains how to obtain the MVUMs for use on your mobile device.

In addition to having copies of the MVUMs, it is highly recommended you purchase a copy of the latest Forest Visitor Map (FVM). These are generally available, for a fee, at most Forest Service Offices. Or you can purchase them from the following website: https://store.usgs.gov/filter-products?categories=%5B216%5D&page=1. These map are complete in that they show everything contained within the NF Unit - items such as campgrounds, lookouts, trailheads, and many more features not shown on the MVUM.
Before traversing any roads or trails, be sure to check the current conditions for that road or trail to ensure a temporary restriction is not in place.
