Nelles Maps

Kevin Kelly talks about his favorite maps for backpackers: Nelles Maps.

Nelles Maps are the best foldable maps for travelers I’ve seen. I favor
them for six reasons: 1) They come at a good practical scale for
traveling, fine enough to show most small rural towns. 2) Each map
displays shaded physical relief of mountains, highway numbers and even
“places of interest” – which are often not listed in guide books. 3)
The maps are printed on both sides to maximize coverage. 4) They are
printed in a form that folds neatly into a shoulder bag, with cover. 5)
They are reasonably priced. 6) Best of all, Nelles seem to keep them
very up to date. I haven’t found any Nelles maps in print that are more
than a few years old.
