Boise National Forest – Travel & Topo Index


It is sometimes difficult to find a topographical map or determine which Ranger District manages part of the Boise NF. There is a link on the Boise NF website to the USGS Topographic Index that makes it easy. Selecting a map takes you to a Forest Transportation Atlas Map. These aren’t USGS maps, but have some topographic detail, the Ranger District boundaries, and all the Forest Service roads. You can find the Topo Index on the Boise NF website under Maps & Publications.
