I enjoy hiking in the rugged Ventana and Silver Peak wilderness areas of Big Sur – sometimes along a trail and sometimes bushwhacking (though some trails are now so brushy there’s not much difference).  After discovering many trails were incorrectly placed on the maps I tried to use, these hikes led to the creation of my Big Sur Trailmap website: “… provides accurate trail and camp locations based on local knowledge (GPS’d), plus locally-known ‘use trails’, non-obvious water sources, waterfalls, and other features in Big Sur state parks and wilderness areas.  Created by a Big Sur explorer, updated weekly from local reports.”
