An incredible planning map, the only one that covers this entire area! Beautiful shaded relief topo, printed on waterproof and tear-resistant paper that shows the trails of the entire Southern Sierra Nevada mountains in Central California. An overview map that shows Sequoia National Park, Sequoia National Forest, Inyo National Forest, Kennedy Meadows, Kernville & the following wilderness areas: Golden Trout, John Muir, South Sierra, Sacatar Trail, Domeland, Chimney Peak, Owens Peak, Kiavah, Bright Star, Inyo Mountains, Coso Range, and El Paso Mountains wilderness areas. Map folds down to nice pocket-size and is extremely durable. Includes trail mileages and elevation points and is an excellent companion for anyone looking to discover more of this amazing and little used area.

    I bought two different maps prior to this one (from another vendor) they were almost useless to me in the field. It would have been way better if I had this then. This map will help me plan my next trip and really be useful in the field.

    Very light and just the right size, this map covers areas my other maps of the Sierra leave out. I haven’t gotten it out on the trail yet, but it feels durable and is definitely waterproof.

  3. Michael H. (verified owner)

    I was looking for maps with clearly marked borders for National Parks, Wilderness areas etc. These are perfect for that. Everything else, trails, roads etc are also marked very clearly.

    These are amazing maps. Very detailed and easy to read. I like them much better than National Geographic maps which have started using red lines for hiker/horse trails making them very difficult to see. Also, the scale of these are better for me as I want to see a larger area in one map, don’t need overkill detail because I generally am not going cross country, I stick to trails, and I am not wanting to carry numerous maps. I highly recommend these. Shipping was fast. Customer service was what it used to be, personalized and satisfying.

    Form factor is excellent! I originally found the Southern Sierra Trail Map at a gas station, so I had to order the rest of them online. I hope there are plans for desert maps as well, and of course, maps for Northern California would be nice too.

    Great job Calico maps!

    Thank you so much for the map. It’s exactly what I was looking for!

  9. Kerri B. (verified owner)

    This map is exactly what I needed to backpack around Kennedy Meadows and get off of the PCT. I was surprised at how quickly the map was delivered. I will definitely use Calico Maps again. Thank you.

  10. Chad W. (verified owner)

    Great map, perfect size for backpacking and a lot of information right there directly in front of you on the map

  11. Quinn Wilson (verified owner)

    Great comprehensive view of a large, complex area. Very detailed.

  12. Keri Pommerenk (verified owner)

    This map is exactly what I was hoping for. It’s a good size without being too big or too small. The color and detail are great, showing lots of trails. It’s lightweight and printed on good quality water proof/resistant paper. I can see this becoming my go-to map collection for planning backpacking trips in Southern California and the Sierras.

  13. Jennifer M. (verified owner)

    Full of information, will be very useful

  14. MICHAEL W. (verified owner)

    Exactly what I needed, thank you!!

  15. Timothy (verified owner)

    These are really beautiful maps. Looking forward to getting out and putting them to use. I would definitely recommend them.

  16. RUSS O (verified owner)

    Excellent, well-detailed maps. I bought three. I plan to do some fishing for Golden Trout in California (catch & release), and I needed a map to point me in the right direction. I actually “framed” one of these Calico maps and hung it in my man cave. Everyone always looks at the map with great interest.

  17. Alfredo Mendoza (verified owner)

    Perfect size and A+ material

  18. Anonymous (verified owner)

    This is an excellent trip planning map. It is incredibly legible with the amount of information presented like campground locations, trailheads, ranger stations, types of motorized road, etc.

  19. Richard F. (verified owner)

  20. David (verified owner)

    Excellent trail map. Not detailed like a quad but instead shows all trails and where they go.

  21. Dennis W. (verified owner)

    There is so much to like about these maps: trail accuracy; easy to understand border lines of the National Parks, Forest, Wilderness areas; small/condensed size of the map; and clear/easy to read distance and elevation for trail intersections. One of the best maps I have ever purchased…and I have a lot! You can’t go wrong with their maps!

    This was the third map I purchased from Calico, unfortunately all there are up to now. Whether they provide up-to-date detail like that of the Lagunas, or a fairly complete overview of a larger area like the most recent one of the Southern Sierra – I find them extremely helpful in planning our next hikes and/or weekend trips. And the water- and tear-resistant material promises a long lifetime even when heavily used; I hope to see many more new products in the near future!

  25. Russ O. (verified owner)

    Great trail maps. Very detailed and helpful.

  26. Terry (verified owner)

    Beautiful and unique map, with all the trails for the area. I’m super pleased to have found this and that Calico had created the map. Plus its coated and waterproof. Another friend I mentioned the map to, ordered one immediately upon knowing of it and he’s equally happy to have all of this info on a single waterproof sheet!

  27. Daniel (verified owner)

    This one is great for planning trips.

  28. Heather B. (verified owner)

  31. Christopher Graham (verified owner)

    The map is beautiful and clearly shows everything I need. Great product!

  32. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Great map! Well organized and mileage numbers are easy to follow.

  33. Dennis Rhodes (verified owner)

    Great map detail is really good may be I missed it doesn’t show little kern horse bridge out of jerky meadow and upper and lower funston.

  34. Adam S. (verified owner)

    Hard to find this area on a map so its pretty great, but missing some labels that could be useful when out using the trails.

  35. Sean Morrisroe (verified owner)

  36. Erin Clerico (verified owner)

    Very nice map with a lot of important trails found on few other maps.

  37. David S. (verified owner)

    Great map! Thank you! I still love a good map and don’t rely on my phone. Make more!

  38. Barbara Hudson (verified owner)

    The map was for a friend who plans to hike the area this year. I was impressed with the layout of the map and very impressed with the speed at which the map was received by me. Thanks very much!

    Calico maps are the best. I have every map in software and can layer them etc. but nothing beats these maps. Plus you have to have a back up right? Every time I get one of these maps, and I own them all, I discover new things even after studying everything else first. Just so readable. Do not hesitate.

    Great map

  43. denise (verified owner)

    Very high quality, wish there were more BLM places 🙂

    Great service! Excellent quality map, waterproof, rugged, great detail, very easy to read, illustrating an area no other commercial map makers cover. Was very excited to receive it so promptly. I can now look forward to many great hikes in that part of our beautiful state of California. Thank you!

    The explicit details per the areas covered are remarkable. So thankful to Calico Maps for creating this map of the Southern / South Eastern Sierra. Such a hidden gem of an area and this map is helping me discover into it !! Stoked !! See ya on the trail !

  54. josh (verified owner)

    Great map, best I’ve found for the location. Fantastic price and super quick shipping – can’t recommend enough

    Great map! Very good quality paper!

  57. Megan B. (verified owner)

    What a great map! This is possibly the only topo map of this region that’s available for purchase, and it’s such a rich area that is hard to find information on otherwise. I just went on a camping trip to the area and this map made it possible. My only complaint is that some of the color choices are confusing (wilderness boundaries are marked in blue, which can easily be mistaken for rivers), and some minor forest service roads are not represented. All around a great resource and a great map though!

  58. Lynn R. (verified owner)

    Covered the area well and provided the data I needed to successfully plan my trip!

  59. Jason Huckeba (verified owner)

    Great map of the area!

  60. John M. (verified owner)

    Fantastic map of the Southern Sierra which shows trails and secondary roads well. Will be looking at this map first before trying to decipher out of date Forest Service maps.

  61. Megan (verified owner)

    Top notch planning map. Provides excellent validation with a map that has more granular details like a Harrison wilderness map. I understand the methodology behind omitting trail names for a majority of routes; a part of me, regardless, would have liked to see some but as I have multiple maps, this is definitely not a deal breaker.

    Map arrived in record time. Quality (so far) appears durable, tho only time will tell if that assumption stays valid. I spent all of the weekend just combing through the map and learning so much more about the area than I thought possible. I would definitely recommend this map to anyone seeking a more bird’s eye perspective on the giant mass of territory that is the southern Sierra. Thank you for this resource!

  62. Colin S. (verified owner)

    Great map! One of the only updated maps I could find that includes the Domeland Wilderness, Golden Trout Wilderness, and other “lesser-known” areas of the Southern Sierra

  63. David C. (verified owner)

    Solid map, purchased specifically for the Domelands, but it is a solid Southern Sierra map. I love maps and have a collection. This one fills in some gaps I had in my collection. Do it, pull the trigger.

  64. Robert (verified owner)

    4 out of 5 ie it exceded my minimum expectation (in other words, pretty darn good).
    Just received my Southern Sierra Trail Map and it looks great. I’ve compared it to some old topos and am looking forward to putting to use planing trips this season. Keep up the good work and looking forward to your next project what ever that is.

  65. Margaret (verified owner)

    Fantastic map!!!

    I was unable to find a map of this area, and Calico Maps came through! It’s detailed and is exactly what I was looking for!

  68. Everett Amburn (verified owner)

    Map is very clear and small which is nice.

  69. kevin (verified owner)

    Small & handy! Also more detailed than some other maps I’ve seen. Hopefully Calico will make maps of other wilderness areas in the state.

  70. Greg Beck (verified owner)

    Great map – Great response time.

  71. Matthew N. (verified owner)

    Fast shipping, great map – thanks!

  72. David (verified owner)

    Nice job, good trail map!

  73. Jason (verified owner)

    Awesome maps! Id add a bit more detail as far as meadow names, but overall very nice maps. I like that they are small and portable.

  74. Oscar R.

    Great map! Easy to read. I really like the color coding. I used this map to plan a hiking trip in the Domelands Wilderness via Cherry Hill Rd. This is hands down the best map out there…. Topo lines, clear trailheads with mileage. So glad my friend told me about calico maps.
