Got Trails?


The Southwest Trails map project is a collection of trail data from six southwest USA states (Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah) compiled for use with compatible Garmin GPS receivers. Southwest Trails is a transparent map, and may be used as a primary map (with no additional maps enabled - only trail data will be visible) or as an overlay map (with additional maps enabled - trail data will be layered over visible maps).


Trail Types


Southwest Trails employs custom definitions to help distinguish trail types and make them easier to locate on the map:
