Paddling Map Booklets
If you have purchased a copy of the revised edition Guide to Idaho Paddling, we have free downloadable map booklets for you.
They are high resolution PDF's of detailed river maps created from 7.5 minute USGS maps. Included is a vicinity map (useful for driving to put-in & take-out locations), river notes, and other helpful information.
The maps are legal size and can be printed on a color home printer or at a photocopy/office supply store. All in all, it's an nice package that you can slip in a map case or ziplock bag and take on the river with you. Below is a sample of what they look like.
To access the booklets, you'll need a log-in name and a password. We'll give you that information in a second. First, a quick explanation of the password.
The password is the first word that you find on a designated page in the book plus the following: #656.
For example, if we give you page number 49, the first word on that page is "Thanks." Your password would be Thanks#656. (It is case sensitive so you want to enter a capital "T" first.)
Be sure to check the indicated page number since we change those from time to time
Your log-in name is: GIP
Your password is the first word on page: 106
(Be sure to add #656 after the word)
