Custom Trail Maps
Hiking one of the 48 four thousand footers in the White Mountains? The maps are geared towards a day hike for most of the hikes with the exception of a few that for most people would be a multi-day hike.
For the longer hikes we included two or three 8 ½ x 11 sheets to cover the larger area with the same scale.The maps are 8 1/2 x 11 which can be downloaded and printed at home. The maps provide 40 foot contours; labels every 200 feet; shaded relief; scales ranging from 1” = 2,000 Feet to 1”=4,400 Feet and you can choose the spatial grid to plot your GPS coordinates.
These maps compliment other smaller scale maps and are great for those learning to hike with map and compass! We have provided a table that list each of the maps available for instant download to compliment the large size maps with less detail (small scale maps 1:79,200).
Below are examples of the 3 different spatial grid options to choose from. Customers now have the option to select the one of the spatial grids referenced below or request others that match there GPS device. Being comfortable with navigating using a map and compass is one of the essential skills to hiking safely. Looking for a topic to learn more about; let us know.

To illustrate a how each spatial grid references the same location, try this online Web GIS application that allows the user to activate the “Coordinate Tool” and hover over any location on the map to retrieve the XY values for each spatial grid. Visit the application by using this link or click on the photo below. The video shows a quick walk through on how to retrieve the XY coordinates for each spatial grid.
Here is an example of the same location referenced in each one of the spatial grids noted above. The location is the intersection of Blueberry Ledge Cutoff and Blueberry Ledge Trail which leads to Mount Whiteface in the Sandwich Range of the White Mountains.
