Topo Map Set v3.3|
new version 3.3 now available for the 2018 hiking season
Replaces version 3.2 and featuring several important
changes to the route layout.
for 2018 - topo maps available to buy on paper
your convenience, GET Topo Maps are available already printed and ready for use
on the trail! Just choose the Paper Topo Maps option when ordering. The maps are
full color, double-sided on
8.5" x 11" letter-sized paper, premium white 24 lb stock, which offers
a good balance between strength and weight savings for the trail. We have the
maps professionally printed using high quality laser inks that resist smudging
and bleeding. The results are sharp and easier to read, providing better value
than is typically available when printing at home.
note that the Paper Topo Maps purchase option ONLY includes detailed topographic
maps for the GET (62 double-sided sheets). It DOES NOT include the additional
overview maps, documentation, and GPS data found on the CD-ROM or online download.
As such, the printed maps are best purchased along with the CD or download unless
you've already purchased one of these previously. We recommend carrying paper
maps on the trail, and this is a hassle-free and economical means to that end.
Sorry, no returns on the Paper Topo Maps and we only offer it as a complete set,
not divided into smaller portions. Expect to retire each map over time as it receives
use (wear), same as if you printed your own.

While it is our hope and endeavor that the G.E.T. Topo Map Set will allow experienced
hikers to avoid most navigational problems and will contribute to a rewarding
adventure along the route, we do not guarantee the 100% accuracy of these maps
and waypoints and assume no responsibility for their use or misuse. Hiking and
backpacking are inherently risky activities, 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.
