The Arizona Trail Detailed Topo Maps
The Arizona Trail Association’s own Aaron Seifert, GIS Director, has revised the Topo map set for 2023 with all the updates from 2022 (view the change log below) using the style and format that Brett Tucker at simblissity.net & postholer.com, produced. It uses ESRI ArcGIS software and the USGS National Map. This is a complete map set for Arizona Trail hikers, mountain bikers, equestrians, runners and outdoor adventurers.
These maps can be purchased as a printed set, and a digital version is available as a benefit for ATA members. For both of these options there are 128 digitized color topographic maps (1:28,000 scale) that cover the entire Arizona Trail from Mexico to Utah. If you’re going out for the day, just print one from the download, or choose that map from the printed set. If you’re planning a cross-state adventure, you can print the entire map set. It’s an economical alternative to purchasing paper topographic maps (which would total over $370 and would not include the nearly 800 data points specific to the AZT).
Some of the exciting features of these maps include:
- 3D hill shading
- Detailed elevation chart on each map
- Accumulated trail mileage every mile (great for thru-hikers)
- An easy-to-follow trail trace overlaid on each map
- Maps include GPS grid marks for compatibility with your handheld GPS unit
- Almost 800 data points including water sources, gateway communities and more
- 8.5″ x 11″ format for easy printing from PC or Mac computers
