Roto Trail Map ??

Postby beater32 on Tue 15/Apr/14 5:53pm

Is there somewhere I can get a map online from ? Hoping to get there over the holidays and want to get my head around it all first! I can't find anything.

You can buy a map from pretty much any bike shop there, including a super handy one that's printed on cloth instead of paper, so it doesn't matter if it gets wet.

There's an iPhone app in the apple store if you have an iPhone.
Details and a link halfway down the linked page.

Going to vegas next week with kids and wife.

Should I shell out for a manky or the app?

We can share the manky. I guess we can share the app but only if they take my phone.

The app is presumably updated following logging and build of new tracks.

Anything else to consider?

I dont find the lines are very clear on the manky. I find the trailforks app more useful (provided you've downloaded the tracks prior as 3G in the forest can be abit spotty).

Route planning (big picture) isnt that easy on either - I think I prefer the map boards for that.

Has the manky been updated? Mine doesn't include the Rocky Horror sequence, which is essential riding in my opinion.

Anyone tried route planning on a Garmin using the trailforks app?

I've had the trailforks map set for a year, works well but like the idea of route planning, especially when out exploring....
