Purple Lizard Maps Rothrock State Forest Trail Map

A hardy map that can withstand punishment and inspire exploration. The Purple Lizard Rothrock State Forest map thoroughly covers the forest, as well as areas north and south of the forest boundaries. Best for folks living in or looking to explore Central Pennsylvania, or for people who really like maps, I suppose. Usage:I own other Purple Lizard maps, but this one gets the most use, as the Rothrock State Forest and surrounding areas are pretty easy to explore via hiking, camping, biking, hunting,… Full review

Purple Lizard Maps Bald Eagle State Forest Map

A map that covers a somewhat overlooked, underexplored, and fairly large area in Central Pennsylvania (Bald Eagle State Forest). The map, in its typical Purple Lizard fashion, is super-durable and could serve as an emergency umbrella if necessary (only half joking...it is waterproof though). Best for those living in or exploring Central Pennsylvania or for map-junkies. Usage:Admittedly, like many in Central Pennsylvania, I’ve explored many of the trails covered by the popular Purple Lizard Rothrock… Full review

MyTopo Waterproof Topo Map Tapoco

Lacking details that most other maps have. Low quality printing. I bought this thinking I could get a customized topo printed on a good quality material. When I received it, I was very disappointed. Many features shown on other maps were missing: water bodies, roads, trails, etc. Coloring was not very good for contrast. Print quality was low For the very high price mytopo.com charged ($42) this was unacceptable. Luckily they offer a money back guarantee. So I sent it back (at my expense). Just before… Full review

Purple Lizard Maps Rothrock State Forest Trail Map

Not all maps are created equal. This map does everything you need and more. It encourages exploration to a degree that is impressive. I buy this map every time it is updated and would encourage anyone who spends any time in Central Pennsylvania to grab a copy. While no product is ever perfect, Purple Lizard Maps has created a map that is close as you can get. The Rothrock State Forest map is a fabulous bundle of knowledge that includes information related to hiking and biking trails, fishing holes,… Full review

Garmin Topo US 24K Southwest

Detailed map set of the Southwestern region for Garmin map GPSes, but some well-traveled trails and hiker-relevant waypoints are not included. I've been a somewhat grumpy Garmin customer for many years now. I am on my third Garmin GPS, an eTrex 30c, which is at least hanging in there for a lot longer than the last one did. It took Garmin years to get around to fulfilling promises to supply versions of it software for Macs, and the Basecamp software used for viewing and planning is klunky and non-intuitive,… Full review

Blackwoods Press John Muir Trail Pocket Atlas

The is a great, extremely light, pocket atlas/set of maps for doing the John Muir Trail. I picked up Erik the Black's Ultralight trail guide for the JMT last summer for use on a couple of section hikes I was doing. The trail guide is only about 2.5 oz, very thin, and about the same dimensions as most paperback books available now days. Each of the maps in the guide include an elevation profile, information on camp and water locations along with a variety of other information useful during your hike… Full review

National Geographic John Muir Trail Topographic Map Guide

If you are contemplating thru-hiking the John Muir Trail (or any section of it), this John Muir Trail Topographic Map Guide does an excellent job of gathering all the needed information for planning, plus having detailed maps of the entire trail and surrounding terrain. Comparison of size of National Geographic Yosemite map with the John Muir Trail Topographic Map Guide (USGS 1:250,000 map in background) Background: I have to confess up front that, despite having hiked and climbed on all seven continents,… Full review
