Grand Enchantment Trail Topo Map Set v3.3

All new version 3.3 now available for the 2018 hiking season

Replaces version 3.2 and featuring several important changes to the route layout.


New for 2018 - topo maps available to buy on paper

For 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.

Please 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.
