Like everything else recently, U.S. Forest Service paper and plastic coated maps will increase to $14 on Jan. 1, 2018.
The hike is due to the increasing costs of production, printing, and distribution, the agency said in an email.
Digital maps for mobile applications can be downloaded at: http://www.avenza.com/pdf-maps/store. Digital maps cost $4.99 per side.
Visitor maps for forests and grasslands within the Rocky Mountain Region are available for purchase directly from national forest and grassland offices.
Maps can also be ordered by mail, fax, phone or online through the National Forest Map Store at http://www.nationalforeststore.com/. Phone orders to 406-329-3024, or fax them to 406-329-3030.
