Possible to import PDFs to Google Earth or Basecamp?

Hi guys,
The Utah BLM issues electronic maps of regions in PDF format. There is a specialty PDF feature specifically for mapping because there appear to be two layers to the electronic maps - the map itself, and then the trails layered on time. The maps and PDFs appears to be geographically relevant/consistent as there is a tool in the PDFs called "Geospatial Location Tool." I have full versions of Adobe Acrobat as well so I'd love to see if I can somehow export just the tracks, and place them into Google Earth without having to manually draw them using screenshotted image overlays.

Anyone know if this is possible?

Here are the maps in case: specifically this one (link to the PDF):
Note how the PDF opens as two layers. This is more noticeable if you are on a slower computer, or as you navigate around the map.

And here is a link for all of the Moab area maps in different sizes, just FYI.

Man would that be cool if I could import those tracks into Google Earth or basecamp...
