Topo Maps for the Pacific Crest Trail
Here are the maps that I have used for each section hike that I have hiked or is next on the trip schedule. I use UTM coordinates on all maps. I find this the simplest way to navigate using my Geko 201 GPS. A good instruction guide for using UTM can be found here. I have found on the trail I can easily pin point my location as well a estimate distances with a map with the UTM grid on it. All maps were created with TOPO! from National Geographic.
Note: Instructional guide for correctly printing maps.
