    Best McCall area maps?

    Thinking about a trip in early September and was wondering what the best maps for the area are.

    I can't disagree with that. I do own several of the guides he has written, they are very useful reference material.

    Do you plan on riding at Ponderosa SP or Brundage?

    No. Actually I like to find trailheads on the first attempt, rather than the third. And, I completely discredit anyone as a guide who says "the one time I rode this trail I turned around here, but I imagine if you kept going it would take you to..." WTF STEVE? You don't write that

    And from experience, I almost always ride loops the opposite way they are described because of what you said.

    The Steubner book is really the only option to get all the trails in one spot. I would buy it locally at Gravity or Alpine Sciences and have one of them mark it up with the real routes. If you need better maps, get the USGS quads or the Payette Forest maps later.

    Rockin,
    Stop by either Alpine Sciences on your way into town or stop at ProPeak in Donnelly for info. Not really a good "map" like the one of the trails around Stanley/Ketchum.
