Our Utah County Backcountry Map is now available! Wasatch Touring Map 3.
This Southern Wasatch mapping scope is very similar to the popular Central Wasatch Touring Maps 1 and 2. Our map shows the mountains and backcountry East of Provo with trail access and avalanche information from Utah Avalanche Center and UDOT forecasters with established UDOT Avalanche forecasting nomenclature. This new map 3 includes Mount Timpanogos, Sundance, the Cascade, Corral mountains to Springville, Buckley Mountain and Left Fork of Hobble Creek. Many beautiful hiking trails have much less use in this new mapped area, some are hard to find according to Junior Bounus our historical hiking trail contributor.
The area covered by the Wasatch maps 1 and 2 can get very crowded for ski touring and in order to ease pressure on these areas we have mapped the Southern Wasatch in Utah County, extending the current backcountry maps available. This area is still unknown by many and where fresh tracks abound. These slopes allow for mountaineers to access a much larger recreation area than found in the Central and Northern Wasatch. There is very little organized use in the area, some heli-skiers and extreme snow mobile riders. This first printing is a limited edition and we encourage our map users to contact us if they can make a contribution or encounter any problems with the routes.
