Latest hiking map of Mallorca looks terrific.
on 8 February 2014
I bought this map along with the new Walk! Mallorca book by Charles Davis and the Tour & Trail Custom Maps Collection 2014 CD, and have used Tour & Trail Maps on La Palma, La Gomera, Lanzarote and Menorca. This map replaces my Mallorca North & Mountains Tour & Trail Map I bought four years ago, so it doesn't show the whole island but does cover all the important hiking areas along and around the Tramuntana. Comparing the old and new maps this new map shows substantial updating on roads, developments, golf courses etc. All the walking routes from Walk! Mallorca are clearly highlighted on the map; plus the gpx waypoint files for these routes can be downloaded for free from Discovery Walking Guides website.
The choice for a map with enough detail and large enough scale for walking/hiking is between Kompass and Tour & Trail. Having used both in the past my choice is for the Tour & Trail Super-Durable each time because of the choice of colours makes the map and its detail easy to read, Super-Durable really does mean tough and folds up like new even after the toughest of use, the concertina map fold makes it easy to unfold and easy to refold into its pocket size - unlike the Kompass large sheet maps.
