    Hey, for Evans Creek, check out the US Forest Service's map, here, and see if you like it:

    http://data.fs.usda.gov/geodata/rastergateway/data/46121/fstopo/465212152_Golden_Lakes_FSTopo.pdf

    It looks like this includes all of the trails marked in their old hand drawn version. I can embed coordinates in the old map, too, if you'd prefer it. If you find it difficult to see the roads on the green background of the FSTopo map, it's comprised of multiple layers, and stripping out a layer of two can make it more readable on your device.

    Those are way better thanks! I wouldn't mind the Evans creek one I sent though. It's alot simpler and differentiates between the 4x4 and bike trails and has the difficulties posted. The two together would be ideal!

    Thanks again!

    Yeah, I see what you're saying. Didn't notice the detail of the legend before. Cool! Okay, I'll do both.

    Lucknau,

    Can you add Cline Butte to your drop box. I found two maps that might be appropriate to add both.
    - http://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/stelprdb5445572.pdf
    - http://www.blm.gov/or/districts/prineville/recreation/cline/files/CBRA_02.pdf

    The first one shows trails as being labeled, but the second just shows the trails without labels, but includes some riding area north of 126.

    Looks like this area is open in the winter, less than 3 hours away and might be a good place to escape the rain and mud, though may be cold and snowy if you don't check first.

    EDIT - Michael, looks like I'm duplicating myself, I posted these (and other Central Oregon Maps) in reply #70 (Only one of the Cline Buttes though). I've got a serious case of CRS syndrome - wonder if it would make sense to put those in your drop box as well if there is space. Plus if they change we'd have an archive. Or at least list link to them on the first thread for others to find.

    Been on the fence about that for a while, but I think it should be done. Will get to work on that soon.

    Also, I think I'm going to drop the Google Drive link, unless anyone wants me to keep it going, since the Avenza PDF Maps app is designed to work specifically with Dropbox.

    Edit: Okay, it's started. I put the many times requested, ever popular Deschuttes OHV (aka COHVOPS) collection on there, along with the Deschuttes MVUMs, and a slew of other stuff. Cheers!

    I added the Cline Butte greater area map to my todo list.

    You're already doing a fantastic job at support our random requests for updates, so I hate to add to your workload. That said, I don't have dropbox and I haven't had any issues with the Google Drive links.

    Also, I've noticed that many government pdf files are already georeferenced, you just need to try it. For instance, Snohomish County hunters and shooters should check out this one: http://wa-snohomishcounty.civicplus.com/DocumentCenter/Home/View/265

    For the Washington MVUM, such as Baker-Snoqualmie NF - is there a way to get those directly, or do you need to buy them from the Avenza store?

    My Avenza app says the Shotgun OHV map is not referenced. :(

    Not sure what happened there. I do have one that's georeferenced. Try again in about an hour.

    Hmm.. Well the BLM posted an updated map this year with the same filename, but not georeferenced. I posted the earlier version (from 2013) just now, and will georeference the new version in the next few days.

    Edit: Done. Posted a newly georeferenced PDF for the 2015 version of the Shotgun OHV map (ShotgunOHV2015_GPS.pdf)

    I can add them. The DNR website isn't very organized, so I'm not sure what all is on there. Are there a few or dozens? Maybe there's a link to the whole list somewhere. Haven't found it yet.

    I just realized that first one I linked to above is already geo-referenced right from the DNR! The other two don't seem to be.

    This thread has been awesome. Thanks for the dropbox full of georeferenced OHV maps.
    For Gifford Pinchot there is a really detailed "Motor Vehicle Use Map" here that is already georeferenced but the problem is it's 130 pages long and only 21 pages have motorcycle trails. So I stripped it down and included the Map Index so when you ride off a page you know which page is next. PDFMaps app for Android doesn't support multi-page PDFs so unfortunately I have to use it as separate PDFs. Here's a link if you wanted to include it in your collection, or maybe it's too complicated... Anyway, thanks again.

    That's awesome! Good work separating everything out. What you did with the index page was a great idea. I copied your Gifford Pinchot folder straight across, into my Dropbox archive. Let me know if you make changes and I'll make sure it stays updated.
