Western Maps LLC
"The Ultimate in Trail Guides"
Welcome to the home page of Western Maps. We are in business to bring to you relatively current (others are not), topographical trail maps or other data.  Trail data in "electronic" form can be expected to be relatively accurate to better than a scale of 1:1,000. That is, you can zoom in very close to get detail not available in a 1:24,000 scale map. The intent is to bring you more detailed and more accurate maps than you've probably ever used before for hiking, mountain biking, or horseback riding, etc.

Other data is in the form of waypoints and tracks.  Tracks are polylines usually representing trails, roads, or routes.  They may be downloaded into GPS receivers as a form of map.  Waypoints are point locations that may also be downloaded into GPS receivers.

Custom Waypoint Symbols for Garmin

We have created some custom waypoint symbols for Garmin receivers that support them. Most of the symbols are intended for trails and hiking and a few replace some symbols that Garmin had on their black and white models but dropped from the color models. These symbols and more information is provided at:
