OHV Map Apps and Websites

As NOHVCC interacts with OHV enthusiasts and managers across the country the most common request we hear is for access to high-quality maps. Many trail managers, companies, and clubs have recognized this need and have created resources to attempt to meet demand. A common approach to providing maps and similar information is to create an application (app) or website through which enthusiasts can download, upload, or access electronic maps.  As a result, NOHVCC has prepared the list below providing information about mapping apps and websites of which we are aware.

Please note – NOHVCC’s intent is to provide you with an idea of what we are aware is available, NOHVCC does not formally endorse any of these products and cannot guarantee the accuracy of the maps found within.

Additionally, NOHVCC encourages anyone who uses any electronic map (app or website) to “ground-truth” any information found within by comparing it to valid paper maps, and/or with managers of the trails or area in question.  Finally, crowdsourcing is a valuable tool and can be harnessed to provide tremendous amounts of information; however, please make every effort to ensure that you are recreating legally – if you are in doubt – skip the trail or area in question until you can confirm it is open for your type of recreation.
