GraniteMaps: Soquel Demonstaion Forest/Nisene Marks released!

🔖 granitemaps  code  cartography 

After much ado, the latest map from GraniteMaps is now available. This map covers 2 distinct areas; The first is Soquel Demonstration Forest, well known in the mountain biking community as having miles of challenging, technical singletrack. The other is the Forest of Nisene Marks which shares a ridge with Demo and provides trail users of all types some of the most pristine redwood forest trails available in California.

This new map is much improved over the last version for Santa Cruz by having a brand new base layer. This is a custom topographic map I designed myself (detailed in this post) which combines OpenStreetMap and SRTM data to create a concise, easy to read map. I hope you enjoy it.

Thanks everyone for your kind words and support! The reception I received for the Santa Cruz map was fantastic, far exceeding anything I could have imagined while creating it!
