Postby postholer » Tue Nov 30, 2010 10:09 pm

The free John Muir Trail maps are now ready!

You can view the data book and 41 page map set online. Registered postholer hikers can download them together in the PDF file.

You can also view the google JMT map which has the same way points and trail trace as the above maps.

Features:
+ 41 full color maps created from 7.5 minute USGS quads
+ Beautiful 3D hill shading
+ Highly detailed elevation chart on each map
+ Large 8.5" x 11" maps for easy viewing
+ Accumulated trail mileage/elevation every half mile
+ Resupply locations within 90 miles of map center
+ WGS84 decimal degree tick marks for easy GPS use
+ Data book information printed at each locale on the maps
+ Separate data book appendix
+ Over 135 way points and resupply locations

Credits:
Trail trace: Peter "Fishmonger" Burke, Bill "Bill_e_g" and USFS JMT data
Topo maps: USGS 7.5 minute quads obtained from libremap.org
Elevation data: USGS DEM
Waypoints, mileages, elevation charts, compilation: postholer.com

The hiking community consists of folks with a wide range of talents and skills. When one of us can contribute our skills to the benefit of the hiking community without muddling things with financial renumeration, it's always a good thing. YMMV.

The postholer JMT maps have been updated with the new data generously provided by the hikers known as Mr. Fishmonger and Bill!

Further, I've created a northbound *and* southbound set with matching data book appendices. You can view the northbound set online and download either from that page.

Thanks again folks for your data, I know the whole community appreciates it!
