California offers an unlimited options for hiking from the Santa Monica Mountains to the Sierras. The California Hiking Map is Jason Mandly’s idea soon to be executed.

Mandly does acknowledge on his website that he might have missed a few trails, and encourages users of the map to reach out to him, for the future revisions.

The trails shown generally include hiking trails, Class 1 bike paths, and fire roads closed to vehicles. This map also highlights select long distance trails and historical trails. Insets were made for some areas that have a high volume of trails in close proximity.

I have imagined the California Hiking Map as being a tool for cataloging trails that you have hiked as well as a way to find new hiking opportunities across the state.

Q: What does the map look like?
