California Central Coast Forest Maps

Los Padres National Forest
There are numerous maps covering the coastal mountain regions of Los Padres NF, which spans from Monterey Bay in the north to the Ojai mountains in the south, and eastward to Tejon Pass @ Interstate 5. Many folks call this area the Santa Barbara mountains, but it is so vast that it covers way more than just the coastline.

The National Forest Service makes two forest maps and two wilderness maps; USDA maps include:LosPadresSouthUSDA

bigsur814NatGeo, short for National Geographic makes three Trails Illustrated colorful, topographic maps covering the entire Big Sur coast line and mountain areas:

Death Valley, Inyo Mts & Saline Valley

And alas, Death Valley National Park is part of the much larger Mojave Desert. Find Death Valley Maps and Death Valley Books. Inyo Mountains separate US 395 (the Owens Valley) from Death Valley, so Inyo National Forest may also be included as a Mojave Desert map. See all the topo quads on the spiral bound Inyo National Forest Atlas.

Both Tom Harrison and NatGeo make awesome recreation maps of this popular SoCal desert. Numerous campgrounds, hiking trails, dirt roads, historic mines, and plenty rock climbing spots. In 1934, Joshua Tree was designated as a National Monument and then later became a National Park in 1994. The local Palm Springs Desert BLM office has paper maps that cover the desert canyon areas near Interstate 10.
