Forest service maps on your iPhone or iPad! This app includes all areas mapped by the United States Forest Service. The map is a single, continuous map, so there's no need to search through menus to find the map you need.
Save favorite spots with map markers that use iCloud to synchronize across your devices.
Upgrade to Pro and get:
• Map downloads. Going off the grid? Download entire forests for use when the Internet is unavailable. GPS-enabled devices such as the iPhone and the Wi-Fi + Cellular iPad show your current location on the map, even when you have no network connection.
• Track recording. Record your track to see where you've been. Each track shows its distance, duration, average speed, and elevation profile. Share your tracks with other Forest Maps users, open them in Google Earth, or export to a GPX file.
This app was not created by and is not affiliated with the United States National Forest Service.
Fixed a bug that caused the app to crash when downloading a map using a cellular data connection.
Ratings and Reviews
The app is great premise but needs improvement.
Got this to use when out exploring and usually where I do not have cell coverage. I have down loaded several maps, it doesn’t seem to work well when there is no cell service. Several times the previously downloaded maps wouldn’t load and when zooming in, frequently won’t display more map details unless I have cell coverage. When I do have coverage it works great. Using iPhone 8 with the current iOS.
Edit: 3* to 5*
Good response from developers and bug was fixed.

We've found the cause of the issue where downloaded maps sometimes didn't load, and the app has been updated with a fix. Download version 2.3, and you should be good to go!
If would be great if... iOS 13 users beware...
I rated this App 3 stars for now until they fix it for iOS 13. Ever since I up graded to iOS 13.1.x, the application is broken. It will start up then it just locks up and is unresponsive.
I did send emails to support. All I received was a note back saying “we are sorry you are having trouble...”. The application works great with previous versions of iOS.
Good thing I didn’t update all of my devices. However, I use my phone the most and am bummed I can’t use it on the go. So I use my old iPad for planning trips out to the woods.
One great addition the application could use is a way it import and export pin locations. Especially when programming flaws like this one happens. You won’t loose all your favorite waypoints and locations.
If they fix the app I will write an updated review. Best Regards & good luck.

An update to Forest Maps is now available that should fix the problems you've been seeing with the app. If your phone hasn't already updated the app to version 2.4, head over to the App Store to download the update. This update also includes the ability to change marker names and colors. The ability to export markers is planned for the next few months.
Whole forest downloads!
I really appreciate that this app developer added this feature similar to his original app. We can see exactly where we are and where we can go to next. It is also great for adding POIs and campsites. One time, we got lost in an Oregon National Forest looking for Waterfalls, but this app, with its detailed roads, helped us to find our way out. USFS roads, because they were built for logging in varied terrain, are often a maze of twisty tangled roads to nowhere. Thanks again.
