I plan to teach basic navigation skills to a group of students in a couple of months, and I am trying to locate a good topographic trail map of the city of Phoenix, AZ that contains part of the Phoenix Mountains Preserve that is located within the city of Phoenix.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to where I should look or know of a map of this kind? All of my usual looking places are leaving me empty-handed. 😞
Thanks in advance!
USGS 25:000 topo series? I imagine that is one of the first places you have checked. Probably doesn't show recent development, but the topo should be right on.
i took the liberty of whipping out 2 maps, pdf, one 1:12,000 scale and one 1:24,000 scale, with utm coordinate line.
here's the link to the map pdf's on my google drive https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1huIQ3UGM8Wr60TObMjRCe8JW8dGbEB5m?usp=sharing
here's the link to the caltopo map i made it from if you want to play with it, i.e. add stuff
@Philreedshikes thanks so much for doing this! I needed a different section of the reserve, but I should be able to make a PDF of it!
Not really, but I'm hoping for a PDF that when printed makes it easy for 8-11th graders to practice reading topographic maps; I don't really need too much of the surrounding area, just the mountain itself! @Philreedshikes
ok, here's the link to the folder with these two(2) maps (pdf)
I did one in usgs, but the name of the range was smack dab in the middle, so I did another using the mapbuilder topo base layer, which shows great contours and map features also.
both in 1:12,000 scale and saved for printing in 11x17
I hope they're useful.
Thank you so much @Philreedshikes, I really appreciate it!
