      TrailPhoto Guides and TrailPhoto Scenes Coverage Area - Overview Map

TrailPhoto Guides are detailed descriptions of trail routes with area maps, topographic maps with highlighted trails, and photographs.  These Guides have brief trail descriptions similar to those found in many guidebooks, but have the added features of color photo highlights of scenes along the trails, and matching color maps to show directions to the trailhead, the trail routes, and trail photo locations on topographic trail maps.

There are currently three main geographic regions covered for these park lands and trails on this website, all in Northern California and Nevada, for which TrailPhoto Guides and TrailPhoto Scenes were created. 

The TrailPhoto Guides web pages that describe these regions further have color coded borders on the left side and near the top of their pages, tied to the three main regions covered. The general website pages have medium-blue color frame borders, as on this page.  The different Regions each have website page border colors that match their Regions' rectangle colors on the map above, as shown on these following Overview pages, for easier reference:

Lake Tahoe Region : Dark Blue

Highway 88 to North boundary of Yosemite Region : Olive

East Bay Region  :  Teal green

TrailPhoto Scenes include the same directions to trailheads and maps as the TrailPhoto Guides, but instead of detailed trail descriptions, they include full-page size TrailPhotos framed in black background for each of the TrailPhotos in the Guides. These are meant as a companion to the TrailPhoto Guides, for those who prefer larger size, better resolution images of the TrailPhotos.  They are also available, including a full free sample, and for acquisition, through this link at:
