Pardon the novice question but where can I go to identify the lakes referenced by number? Thanks!

Lakes that do not have names are often referred to by their elevation that is on the 7.5 minute USGS topographical maps.

If a lake is numbered in the 3000 range the measurement is metric. Some maps show feet. If your map shows lakes in the 10000s convert the numbers above to feet. Tom Harrison maps show measurements in feet.

Hi Harthiker,

Welcome to HST! If you get the time, an official introduction would be appreciated. :thumbsup:

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.
