Coming from England to the US I needed a highly detailed road-map of backcountry areas for hikes I had in mind.
Already having bought a Randy McNally for a previous road-trip I knew that the McNally wouldn't cut it.
Needing something that covered in great detail all the local and state roads to access some backcountry areas I bought this on recommendation from a US based photographer.
Benchmark maps give you a near-infinite level of detail, all you need for trip and logistical planning.
- State roads
- Local roads
- BLM roads
- Road quality -- 4x4, washes, grades, campsites etc
As they go into significant detail the maps are spread over a number of pages, which can get confusing. But a small price to pay usability wise for such road detail.
A must if you are planning to go to lesser visited areas of Utah or 4x4-ing. I liked this so much i got the Arizona one as well for trip planning for next year.
