Access Note - It’s up to the you to know where you can and can't adventure, but onX Backcountry can help. We aim to provide you with key information for planning your adventure, as well as guidance on how to use that information to find places to go. Keep in mind that government owned properties in onX are not always accessible to the public and may be subject to special restrictions, so it’s best to check with the managing agency and to obey any signs you encounter in the field. Paved roads displayed on the map may include state, county, and private roads and do not connote public access. Tap on the property or trail to find the managing agency (e.g. Bureau of Land Management, National Forest, etc) that can answer your access questions.
