2008 Annual Achievement Award winner: for trail projects funded through the Recreational Trails Program of the Federal Highway Administration. Awarded by the Coalition for Recreational Trails.

Utilizing RTP funds, the Wyoming State Trails Off Road Recreational Vehicle program developed ORV maps that are provided free of charge to users from Wyoming and out of state as well. The maps were designed in Arc Map format with assistance and input from US Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management offices, ATV groups and Wyoming Game and Fish among others.

The maps not only highlight trail systems, but also include information about ethics, tread lightly, permit-selling agencies, hunting, rules, regulations, and safety.

Production of the maps began in 2003 and they are updated yearly. Nine maps are now constructed and printed each year. Maps can be requested from the Wyoming State Trails Program website or by phone. Flat copies of each map are placed on kiosks and used at trailheads.

Maps can be ordered from the Wyoming State Trails website at:
