A new version of Snowshoe Mountain’s hiking/cross-country map has been created for 2011. This edition is similar in many aspects to the first map we created for Snowshoe in 2005 – printed to 11″ x 17″, it includes a mileage and trail rating table to facilitate ease of planning your outings.
The USGS 1:24,000 scale topographic maps here are overlayed with the data we’ve made available for download in kml format here and displayed here on Google Maps. On this map portages are also labeled with their length in feet (not yards or rods, sorry) along with access points and campsites. The data shown here is based on others data: entry points, portages, and wilderness boundary data from Friends of the Boundary Waters, et al.; campsite locations from data by Peter Berbee.

Looking to plan your next canoe camping adventure? There are several great resources for data in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and surrounding paddling areas. We took a look at the data that is available and compiled a single .kml file that includes access points, campsites, portages, and the wilderness boundary. This data can be viewed using Google Earth, and compliments perfectly the many well researched guidebooks and maps of the canoe routes in this expansive area. We also created a couple of interfaces so you can view the data online – see it using Google Maps or overlayed on 1:24,000 series topographic maps.
