    I was frustrated by the lack of a decent map that wasn't a B&W copy of a copy of a copy... so here it you go... I also have GPS tracks, but it's not exactly a huge area... but if anyone wants them, just holla.

    Nice map - what software / basemap do you use?

    Thanks.

    I used GAIA GPS to do the route traces.
    The layers are flexible, so you can adjust the transparency between the satellite, topo and shaded relief layers to see where the trails are, then adjust the three to get a nice shaded relief topo base map for the final output.
    Labeling the trails is a pain... I have to drop the map image into Powerpoint. That's easy enough, but if I change the trail ratings, I need to do that in GAIA GPS then bring the image back to PPT and then scale and move it to line up with the labels.

    About to make some rating changes following some peer review on the Rowher Flats thread, so I'll update this version in the next day or so.

    Hey Timthai, Nice map! Would love to get your tracks. I go to rowher all the time. Also I have several tracks from neighboring Boutique Canyon if you want them.

    Kiprock, I'm a noob with a Yamaha WR250r, and live about an hour from Roger Flats. Wondering if you just day ride, or do multi-day adventure rides. Would be good to hook up with other riders...
