Comments about North Cascades National Park Trail MapÂ :
Trail mileage is essential, but missing. Many of the hikes have significant elevation gains, and lots of squiggles (switchbacks) show on the map. Best estimates of mileage based on the map, checked against reference sources like WTA hiking guide, will be off by 30-50%. Can't really use this map without looking up and writing in trail mileage from an external source.
