How Can You Find That Hike's Starting Point?

GPS Coordinates

New members often have trouble finding a hike's starting point, and even experienced members can have trouble with a rarely used place. To help, Bill Miller and some friends have compiled a list of the latitude and longitude of more than 300 places where hikes start. You can use these values by putting them into your car's GPS as a place to drive to, or you can put them into a web site like MapQuest and get detailed directions on how to drive to the hike start. To use this, you should first read some comments on GPS formats, and some instructions on using latitude and longitude with a GPS, or instructions on using latitude and longitude to get driving directions with Google Maps, Bing Maps or Mapquest. Then check out the list of latitudes and longitudes .

Hike Maps

Of course many hikers prefer maps over GPS instructions. Here are some links to maps:
