There are so many great new web maps. If you already have baseline knowledge of the Sierra, they’re better than any guidebook or blog. I’m not linking to alltrails, everytrail and similar websites because I find stewarded data sets are usually better than crowdsourced.
- High Sierra Topix map (landing page here) – the contributors to this know their stuff
- Sierra Passes – uses this data set
- Bob Burd’s webmap – tricky to navigate but uses Bob’s stellar 1st hand data set of peak bagging info.
- Sierra Nevada Geotourism Map – general Sierra tourism, not backcountry information. ho-hum.
