updated for 2013, this CD-ROM contains all of the detailed
topographic maps you'll need to navigate the Arizona National
Scenic Trail between Mexico and Utah. Here you'll find a total
of 130 high-resolution image files showing the trail, terrain
features, mileages, points of interest and much more, all
viewable and printable from your computer's desktop using
the included Image Viewer freeware program (or your favorite
image viewing software). This CD mapset also features a Data
Book for the entire trail, containing detailed information
about important features along the way, including water sources
and resupply locations. The Data Book and maps are quickly
and easily cross-referenced in the field, and together these
resources serve as an indispensable aid to planning and realizing
an enjoyable outing along the Arizona Trail, whether for the
day, a weekend, or a multi-week thru-hike.
maps are formatted for printing on 8.5" x 11" bright
white, high resolution, or waterproof printer paper; in most
cases it should be possible to print on both sides of a sheet
to conserve paper and weight.

While it is our hope and endeavor that this map set will allow experienced
hikers to avoid most navigational problems and will contribute to
a rewarding adventure along the trail, we do not guarantee the 100%
accuracy of these maps and waypoints and assume no responsibility
for their use or misuse. Hiking, backpacking, and trail riding inherently
involve some risk, so be sure to use these maps as part of an overall
approach to maintaining safety in the backcountry, and do not assume
their endorsement of a particular road, trail, or creek crossing,
etc. Conditions in the field can change, sometimes quickly, and property
boundaries can be redrawn to exclude public access. In short, use
the maps and benefit from them, but use your skills and your awareness
too. And always keep your options open when determining the safest
and most practical direction of travel.
