Cape Cod hiking trails map

Cape Cod National Seashore
Trails Illustrated®

Well prepared topographical map shows all trails, campsites, and recreational features, plus relevant info on wildlife, history, geology, and archaeology. All data is updated to reflect road closings, new trails, and campground relocation. Printed on waterproof, tear-resistant material with a plastic coating that offers supreme durability for your next outdoor adventure. Measures 4" x 9" folded and 28" x 32" fully opened. Scale 1:38,000. Note that on this amazon.com link, used copies may be found at discount. I recommend these as usually they are an excellent deal, however they may not be the most recent printing.

Boston city map

Streetwise® Boston

This product combines a detailed city map with fascinating travel information. The map resists tearing and folds and unfolds easily. It's user-friendly format can be followed by all but the most cartographically inept. Whether for vacation or business travel, this is a terrific map, and I certainly recommend the "used" versions listed at amazon because they are a true bargain starting at less than two dollars.
