New maps

I’ve kept busier than it might appear, but much of my hiking recently has been on trails I’ve covered before and I haven’t found anything new to say about them.  I’ve nearly finished hiking the OHT again, for instance, and have been collecting GPS data this time around.  I’ll soon publish a set of maps for the whole trail, with the new mile markers, private property boundaries, many well-known waterfalls, etc.

In the mean time, I’ve recently published maps of the East Fork, Hurricane Creek, Richland Creek, and Leatherwood Wildernesses and the Redding/Spy Rock Loop.  The wilderness maps are rather bare-bones now but as I get out and explore more of those areas I’ll add to them.

Dec 22 update:  I’ve also updated my Buffalo River Trail maps.  They now include a section of the trail that had not previously been published.

  1. Hey Michael, can you give me some info on camp sites in the US-65 to AR-14 section of the Buffalo River Trail?

    Thanks and happy holidays

      I think the regs are similar to the Natl Forest – you can basically camp anywhere. Of course, Leave No Trace protocol restricts that a bit. Much of the area is either too steep or too rocky for a tent and the flattish bottom-land areas are often covered with cane. I think a person will have to be willing to make-do with whatever they can find.
