Hike safely! Plan for changing weather conditions especially at higher elevations. Read trail updates, check the weather & bring a map.

To help ensure a safe and fun outdoor experience, we strongly encourage you to read and learn from these online resources before heading outside.

Bring a paper map or check out downloadable maps.

  • To check out the GMC's new digital downloadable maps that don't require cell phone service, click HERE. (Or click on GMC's 'Shop' menu item.) Once there, scroll down to view all available maps. Please note that GMC strongly recommends always having a paper map and compass in the backcountry. Digital devices may fail due to batteries dying, getting wet or broken, etc, and should only be used as an addition to paper maps.

Check trail conditions and the weather.
