GPS coordinates and maps for the important points on the Rubicon Trail


Sure, there are books and maps on the Rubicon available - but every summer I meet folks that are lost on the trail. They have book and map in hand but still have no clue where they are. I figured that only GPS coordinates will tell exactly where to go. I used 2 topo maps with reference points (sorry, kinda big files) - you can download them using the following links Map 1 (3.2 Mb) Map 2 (1.3 Mb)
