Attention to detail: Roads are rated according to road conditions: paved, 2WD, 2WD High clearance, and 4WD. 2WD High clearance vehicles are recommended. Likewise, trails and routes are rated to help guide users through the map area: track, primary trail, secondary trail, route and mountaineering route. This detail will be of particular use in this area where trail conditions can vary considerably over short distances. In addition, small side creeks and trailside pond positions, not indicated on any other maps, are shown. This is because Trail Ventures BC is the first map maker to map these trails and routes on foot – most of them several times.
Grids: UTM (Zone 10U) and lat/long. Map projection/datum: NAD83. UTM gridlines plus gradations on the outside of map frame; and lat/long gradations on inside of map frame.
