Source for maps of the Winds on 07/07/2008 18:13:13 MDT Print View

Can anyone suggest an online source where I can order a topo map of the eastern Winds, specifically to include Glacier Trail?

Thanks,

Peter

Earthwalk Press publishes North and South maps for the Wind River Range at 1:48000 scale, with trails. (Hopefully these cover the area you want; I don't have them, so I'm not sure.)

If you are going off-trail, you'll want quads. You can get them for $1/ea. from TOPO! Explorer (the application can download the quads you buy, and print) at:

Or you can get quads for the entire US for free from the Libre Map Project.

Organizing and printing these can be a pain, but, hey, they're free!

Thanks Doug!

I ordered the Earthwalk Press book (North) and three USGS 7.5' topos to include the area where I'll hike. I found them at OmniMap.
