Map Legend  

MAP LEGEND and MARGINS

The legend and margins of Green Trails Maps contain a myriad of useful information. Printed along the margins of a GTM are location coordinates, UTM coordinates, and latitude/longitude minute and second subdivisions.

The map legend defines many of the graphic elements found on a GTM. Summer and winter recreation trails for hikers, equestrians, mountain bikers, cross county skiers, and snowshoers are distinguished by different line styles.  Road classifications include paved, gravel, dirt, four wheel drive and key access roads to trailheads. In addition, a variety of recreation details are defined in the legend: trail mileage/trail junction elevations/gates/lookout towers/benches/viewpoints etc.
