New CMT map?
« on: February 26, 2017, 11:33:37 AM »
I see that on their website BBNHA has a new "revised" "full-color" version of the Chisos Mountains Trails map. Has anybody seen one? Comments?

I saw one at Persimmon Gap VC yesterday on my way out of the Park.  It looked nicely enough done.  Almost got one, but decided against it, since the one I have is not worn out. Noticed it had Lower Juniper Spring in the "wrong" spot... The Emory Peak trail has been updated, not sure what else would be "revised".

I see they have finally taken the old EP1 campsite off and made the Blue Creek trail 5.9 miles (has been 5.5) and Juniper canyon trail 6.7 miles (was 6.2).  Didn't look any closer but wonder if there are any other changes like that?

Nice!   I have a 2016 revision. It had the mileage and campsite updates that Mule Ears mentioned, but it did not have the color. Cattail Falls was labeled on the 2016, but it looks like it was dropped from the 2017 rev.

The new map was created after NPS personnel using a surveyers' wheel walked all the Chisos trails so the new milages are more accurate than the old maps. Well worth the $1.39 price for this colorful map. KK
