Three map makers – Wilderness Press, USDA & National Geographic – all make topographic hiking maps for the Ventana Wilderness Map, located on the super scenic Big Sur coast in California.
The original topo hiking map is the one from the National Forest Service.
Silver Peak Wilderness located inside the northern section of Los Padres National Forest (Monterey County California)
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. Map printed with vegetable oil based ink, on waterproof polypropylene plastic. USDA printing 2007; Scale 1: 63 – ISBN# 9781593514655
