More Than Just a Map

Not just maps, but guides that provide you with the detailed information that you have been searching for including: detailed directions to the trailhead, trail length, allowed trail uses, difficulty level, trail intersections, elevation gain and elevation profiles. In addition, POCKET PALS Trail Maps show how all of the trails in an area are linked or interconnected. This allows you to create your own unique adventure! And finally, one of the most unique features of our trail maps is that each trail contains numerous waypoints that have been identified while collecting GPS data on the trails. Each waypoint has a trail mileage associated with it. Waypoint locations identify a variety of landmarks along each trail including: trail intersections, stream crossings, overlooks, geologic features, ridgelines, ruins, bridges, etc.  These waypoints act as your guide so that you will ALWAYS stay on track!

High-Tech Data Gathering

The trail data for these trail maps was gathered directly in the field using GPS (Global Positioning Satellite) technology. We never copy information from other historical or out-of-date sources.

Small, Easily Fit into Your Pocket

No more lugging around clumsy guide books or large, cumbersome trail maps. All of our POCKET PALS trail maps will easily fit into your pocket. Thus our name...POCKET PALS!  Now That's Convenient!

Tough and Sturdy

POCKET PALS Trail Maps are made of a special paper that is both waterproof and tear-resistant!  So they will last and last.

Created Locally by Locals
