Small-Format Maps by Pease Press
Detail of Trails of Central Marin County, 2014
This is the country you see on the way to Point Reyes National Seashore, as urban Fairfax gives way to West Marin farms and forests. There is more public access here than first meets the eye. Get up close and personal with the landscape out the window.
This map shows northern Bolinas Ridge, Marin Municipal Water District's Pine Mountain and San Geronimo Ridge areas, and Marin County Parks' Gary Giacomini, White's Hill, French Ranch, and Roy's Redwoods Open Space Preserves. It also shows one of the few accurate maps of trails in Samuel P. Taylor State Park.
This map bridges three of our maps – Mt. Tamalpais, Muir Woods, and the Marin Headlands overlaps on the south, Trails of Northeast Marin County overlaps on the east. The same basic area on this map appears in the corner of the Point Reyes National Seashore and West Marin Parks map I drew for Wilderness Press; this map is a richer in detail and colors.
Detail of Trails of Pacifica (2014)
Parks in Pacifica are somewhat off the beaten track but well worth the search. Sweeney Ridge, Montara Mountain, and San Pedro Valley Park have great views of Pacifica and San Francisco Bay cities, and the string of beaches along the coast are scenic and well-loved, if not 100% wild.
This map is a 2014 supplement, or update, to the north half of our venerable 2002 Trails of the Coastside map (which we will reissue in expanded form in 2015). Our very first map, Trail Map of Pacifica (1996, out of print) showed the same basic area. The big new changes from both maps are the network of trails at Mori Point, and the spectacular Devils Slide Trail on old Hwy. 1. New shaded relief shows every wrinkle of the coastal mountains and canyons.
50-foot contours, 1:30,000, 16 x 21 inches. Color laser print, $4.00
Trails of Pacifica can also be purchased locally at San Pedro Valley Park visitor center (weekends), and Florey's Books (open daily).
These are experimental trail maps output on 11x17 color laser prints. It's a little tacky but it lets us show areas where a big print run isn't in the cards. Cost is higher than a map printed on a press, but it allows the maps to be published at all. (Most of the cost is the color laserprint itself).
The color is decent; the paper is fairly durable and tolerates a little damp.
Due to the higher-than-usual production cost, we generally sell these small maps by mail to the public. But if you're a bookseller and it's a good fit we'd be happy to discuss a discount.
Trails of Pacifica, for example, is available in a few local stores noted below right.
