This map was created using GPS Visualizer's do-it-yourself geographic utilities.
Please wait while the map data loads...
The core of this map is based on: Idaho's ARCGIS Map
linked from parksandrecreation.idaho.gov and from sources like: trails.idaho.gov.
Additional sources are credited below.
Obvious differences from THAT mapset are from on-trail experiences and changes perceived from the below credited sources.
Mileages were created at gpsvisualizer.com and are NOT OFFICIAL.
READ ME: This is a large file; loading takes a while. Some browsers cache exceptionally large files locally.
Refresh/reload if the page loaded quickly to insure the most recent version was loaded.
Mile Marks are preceded with a letter code:
m = Main Route
e = East Route
w = West Route
z or y = Alternate and Other Routes
Main, East, and West routes are generally direct from the ARCGIS map cited above, altered for known or obvious re-routing.
Routes named gryfolge are from Gry Folge's 2019 thru-hike reflecting the day hiked and may have been simplified for appearance.
Primitive campsites named gryfolge are as above, other sites are predictive, NOT FACT.
Water sources named gryfolge are as above, other sources are predictive, NOT FACT.
Small Truck: Resupply point
Single Tent: Primitive Campsites
Green Star: Crossing Water Sources
Red Diamond: Important Read Me Notes
Red Square: Warnings
Blue Hiker: Trailhead/Junction with the Primary Trail named first
Green Ovals: County/State Borders
Blue Items: Common Notes, Information - Not fully implemented
Green Items: Common Landmarks, Geographic Features - Not fully implemented
Red Items: Special Notes and Alerts - Not fully implemented
Blue: Main Track
White: Used for underpinning the Main Track with Named Trails
Red: Primary Alternates, East and West, of the Main Track
Green: Known Alternate Routes roughly equal to the local section of the Main Track
Cyan: Known Off-Route Trails for Reference
Yellow: Gry Folge Tracks from 2019.

Legends, Menus, & Info Boxes (like this one) can be hidden by double-clicking their top bar or repositioned with click & hold.
Waypoint Names are click-to-display/center. Zoom-in first and then highlight to auto re-position accordingly.
Waypoint Names in the legend can be searched using your favorite browser's [Ctrl-F]
function which usually places a search box in the lower left.
Track Names are click-to-label.
The Tiny Icon just to right of a Track Name in the legend is click-to-zoom to show track.
The [NOT enabled] Mouse Cursor position is displayed in lower left; there is a ruler too.
Click Center Box in lower left to place a Marker in the center of the map and reposition desired point there to get the position.
Select alternate Map Types from the dropdown box in top right.
The different Map Types may have different levels of zoom. [Ex. Compare Google terrain vs. US terrain]

Maps suggests several locations for water cache placement on the lower 90 miles. Drop off some water while driving down.
Additional water could easily be placed between mile 142 and 96 by camping at mile 142 on a prior day. Mile 142 can be reached from Fairfield via a well traveled direct route.
Allow about 4 hours to drop water between miles 142 and 96.
Outfitter, Barker River Expeditions may be able to help with placing water caches in lower 90 miles. In season, it would be an easy drop near map-miles 33, 64, and 70.
Note: Waypoint Positions and GPS Tracks reflect information gathered from
various sources and will vary somewhat from real world locations. Still today, some park service information is sourced from coarse logging maps created in the early 1900's and is considered
'best source' with no effort to verify and update subsequent maps. Expect trailheads, campsites, water crossings, etc. to easily vary a quarter-mile.
This data can easily be loaded onto the $5 MapOut app. Differences of icons has not been addressed and may be concerning.
I would like to follow any shared maps such as Garmin's https://share.garmin.com/bearbelle
This is a work-in-progress, contact me for the latest DRAFT version of data - which this map may not show.
Trail Numbers and Names may be derived from different sources. Too often sources disagree on the trail number and name.
And some sources have 3-digit number while other have 4-digit number for the same trail. i.e. often 70XX is the same trail as 0XX and XX BUT this is NOT always the true.
And there are miscomprehensions and mistakes made by Warren, himself.
There are known unresolved issues with trail identification, but if you find one report it. Remember, this is a draft.
There may be shuttle or bus service between the towns of Mullen and Wallace for resupply.
National Forest Development Roads, NFDR, differ from Forest Service Roads and may not be maintained, may be suitable only for non-motorized traffic,
nature trips, horse travel, and snowshoeing and are best used from March until October. This distinction is not always clear and therefore this map may have errors.
Some NFDR's are passible in high clearance vehicles. During any season, anyone traveling such roads in any vehicle should carry self-rescue equipment such as: rope,
saws, chains, shovels, buckets; as well as extra clothing, food, and water. EXPECT NO CELL SERVICE.
