>From the Mexican border north to the Gila we used 3 BLM maps for the CDTS
route which were borrowed, with the CDTS route highlighted on them, and very
accurate in combination with the description.

In the Sante Fe and Carson, again we basically used BLM and Jonathan's maps
although we did have the NF maps.

Although the CDTS guidebook has accurate and detailed descriptions, I
wouldn't rely soley on the contained maps for navigation.
