I touched on some of my maps in my previous post on Navigation. But again, my collection has grown, so here's round two!
Of all my maps I think the Eastern NY All Outdoor Atlas and Field Guide is my favorite – BUT its way too large to take on hikes. So its more of a planning map. But it lists tons of trails and other outdoorsy things in Eastern New York (inluding all the High Peaks)
The maps I generally hike with are the National Geographic Topo Maps – they are awesome. They have most of the trails on them, plus they all have that waterproof coating and are tear resistant so they're perfect for most bad weather situations.
I have these: #748 – Green Mountain National Forest South, #747 – Green Mountain National Forest North, #742 – Adirondack Park: Lake Placid/High Peaks, and #755 Catskill Park
These maps were the first ones I purchased, and had I done some more research I probably would have started off with the National Geographic ones above instead. But I have these around for looking at if needed. They do cover more of the Adirondack region than then National Geographic one.
