If you've been intrigued by a place the Trekkers visited along the American Frontiers Journey, or are inspired to visit some other public lands, have we got maps for you!

After many years of providing interpretive information in Forest, BLM, and Refuge Visitor Centers, PLIA learned that the one thing nearly all visitors need (besides the bathroom), are maps of their public lands. Finding which map can be bewildering, so the Forest Service and the BLM gave PLIA a Service First grant to provide an online, interactive map-finding tool with downloadable maps. It's not quite finished, but all the states along the American Frontiers route are available.

If you're heading out on your public lands, stop here first. We also carry a selection of forest, park, and refuge passes.
