The US Forest Service is part of the Department of Agriculture(USDA) and has quite an extensive network of all of their roads including logging trails.
In fact it is almost too much.
Here is a link to the Authority,  I hope it helps.

apparently you have something in the US called "Forest Routes"


which even has its own kind of shield! (Yes I know, there are *many* shields. I've followed the discussions!)

Is there some common understanding of how to map these, if at all? I've looked around a bit and found some roads marked "ref=FS<something>" but these were few and far between.
