The cost of U.S. Forest Service maps will increase Jan. 1 for the first time in 10 years.
The cost of paper and plastic coated maps will increase to $14, according to a news release from the Idaho Panhandle National Forest. Currently the maps cost $10.
The increase is driven by increasing production and distribution costs, according to the news release.
Maps are sold at all ranger stations in national forests, supervisor’s offices and some stores. Discount pricing for sales of 10 or more maps of the same title will be available.
Maps can be purchased online: www.NationalForestStore.com. By phone: (406) 329-3024. By mail: Forest Service, National Forest Store, P.O. Box 7669, Missoula, MT 59807.
Digital maps cost $4.00 per side and can be purchased online.
