Useful links to places of information and maps.  When you are looking to spend some time in an area, it's a good idea to know about some of the lesser known places and roads that are likely to take you to some really nice spots.  Some terms to use when searching:
"Motor Vehicle Use Roads" is a term that will help you find maps with Forest Service Roads.  These are the dirt roads that meander through our National Forests and Parks.  They are not exactly obvious to you when you go to the different websites, so knowing to look for them will help you get back into the woods.  Just be aware that these are generally not very nice roads and you shouldn't drive your Prius on them for the most part.

"Primitive Campsites" is another that will help you find maps and information as to where you can camp in the backwoods or other areas in the parks and forests.
