OLD fold-out MAP
This smaller Baja fold out map was a once-off map publication that was printed in the mid-2000s, but it is impossible to find now. Originally selling for a mere $5.95, they were quickly outta stock and never to be seen again.

Several map makers offer topographic hiking maps for the Ventana Wilderness Map, located on the super scenic Big Sur coast in California. Silver Peak Wilderness is to the south of Ventana, and usually included on the same map. Perfect for day hikes, overnight backpacking trips or just getting an impressive view of the Pacific Ocean.
If you plan on backpacking the Big Sur Coast, this is the California topo map you will need. This map covers both the southern section – Silver Peak Wilderness & the northern most Ventana hiking areas. This map covers everything south and east of Andrew Molera State Park over to Sierra de Salinas near Hwy 101, and southward to Ragged Point & Windy Point in the southern Big Sur coastline. Camp in coastal redwood groves, hike the trails with outstanding views over the Pacific Ocean, and play in the numerous fern lined creeks.
