Maps of the PNT in our National Parks
National Geographic Trail Maps of the PNT
National Geographic Trail maps can be extremely useful for navigating the PNT in our National Parks and adjacent National Forests. These large scale maps can supplement your navigation toolset with trail and topographic information for a much a larger area around the PNT trail corridor than our PNTA strip maps show. Please note that these maps may not show popular alternate routes of the PNT.
NPS Backcountry Trip Planning Maps
National Park Service maps of the backcountry campsites along the PNT in our National Parks can be found at the links below. These maps are very useful in trip and backcountry permit planning.
Please note that these maps are not suitable for navigation and may not show popular alternate routes of the trail.
Maps of the PNT in our National Forests
Maps of the PNT in our National Forests can be found at the links below. Please note that the Pacific Northwest National Scenic Trail may not be highlighted on these maps. Instead the PNT will be referred to by its local trail name (i.e. Kettle Crest Trail #13). Until the Federal Advisory Council Process is concluded, the PNNST has not been assigned an official trail number.
