Butler Maps


I don't remember where I saw this site probably Cycle News. Butler has a series of maps for motorcycle riders, street bikes, that use primarily dirt roads mixed with some highway sections called Back Country Discovery Routes. https://www.butlermaps.com/

I just received the Yuma to Benton CA (north of Bishop) map, it's pretty interesting. It has an Elevation Profile, GPS Track Guide, and Points of Interest. From what I can tell the dirt roads are not single track for a bike only but two tracks for a 4 wheel vehicle too. Check it out there looks like some pretty good trips to be made.

I have several butler maps and they have a lot of detail. They have some TAT, Oregon back country and good Nevada stuff.

I see where the paper maps are, but don't see any mention of GPS track files.

Here is CA:

California-South Backcountry Discovery Route Map

$14.95

The CABDR-South is the ninth route created for dual-sport and adventure motorcycle travel and the first wintertime BDR. This spectacular, yet challenging, 820-mile ride across the Southeastern region of California, starts in Yuma, AZ, and ends in Benton, CA. Primarily using rugged two-track and remote dirt roads the route leads riders through majestic canyons, rocky riverbeds and sandy washes of California’s famous deserts and national preserves. You’ll experience quirky desert enclaves and ghost towns, visit historic mines, see ancient petroglyphs and intaglios, dip in healing mineral hot springs and ride among the unique Joshua trees in the Mojave National Preserve.
