Campsite/trailhead Map?
« on: September 17, 2019, 06:09:29 PM »
Could a kind hearted lady or gentleman link me to a map that shows trailheads and campsites (primitive roadside are those I care about really)
I'm planning my trip in October and would like to get a feel for distances from certain sites to certain trailheads.

I'm sure what I'm looking for exists, but obviously my Search-fu is lacking because it eludes me. :icon_rolleyes:

Much appreciated in advance,

From the BIBE home page, type "maps" in the search box.  There are several links that come up.

Here is a link to a pretty good over view map of the park with mileages and the roadside campsites.
temperatures exceed 100 degrees F
minimum 1 gallon water per person/day
no shade, no water

Thanks!  Yeah that’s what I’m after.  Also found this one

Which is not really needed I realize because these trailheads are all close enough together, might as well just say “close to the visitor center”.

If you install the Maplets app, http://www.mobilemaplets.com/, on your phone you can download that map and see your location on it.  Doesn't sound like it's of much value, but when you're on some of the gravel roads in the park it's nice to see how much farther you have to go.
