Welcome To The Monday Ramblers

We Hike The Olympic Peninsula...


Some folks have had trouble viewing the topo route after clicking a link below.  All that's displayed is a topo map of the entire Olympic Peninsula.  The Ramblers can't fix this because all our data are stored on a Garmin server.  But there's a simple work around.  


If you can't see the topo route just click the REFRESH button on your browser.  That will fix it and you'll see the route superimposed on a topo map.  Remember, just click the REFRESH button and you'll be good to go!

Topo Map Routes And Elevation Data

Below you’ll find links to some of the hikes the Monday Ramblers have enjoyed.  Each link will take you to a topo map with the hiked route superimposed.  This is the route we actually hiked rather than the route on a map.  Experience has shown that what we actually do can be different than what a trail map indicates. 

This is especially true with distances.  My guess (and it’s only a guess) is that distances were estimated decades ago before GPSes were readily available and these erroneous distances have never been updated.  So in the description section of many of the pages you’ll note that the actual distance hiked as compared to the official distance on the chart is different.  Typically the actual distance is longer than the official chart distance. 

You can play with the topo maps by clicking the Plus/Minus buttons to zoom the map as well as clicking the layers buttons to remove the mileage markers and/or the waypoints if there are any.  On the top of the map the "stacked boxes" will let you select how much of the page you want the map to use--small, medium, or large.  On the right side of the page you can read the full description with actual mileage if there was a difference between the actual mileage and the map mileage.  You can also put your mouse pointer on the elevation graph to see what the elevation was at a specific mile marker.  This will let you figure out how much of an ascent or descent took place between Point A and Point B using some grade school math.  If you click the Waypoints tab you'll get more specific information about the waypoints if there were any.  Go ahead and experiment with the topo maps, you won’t break anything. 

By the by, on the map itself where you see Terrain, that's just one kind of map.  Click Terrain to see the list of four options and check them out. One option drops the route onto a Google Earth image which is pretty darn cool.

As the Monday Ramblers explore more hiking routes this section will be updated or at least that’s the plan. 

One last item, you can download a FREE program called BaseCamp either for a Windows PC or for a Mac and then download the topo maps directly into BaseCamp.  You’ll get a lot more information that way.  There’s a link to the download page on each topo map page.  

Heads Up!  These links won't load on a separate page like the Ramblers photos do.  To get back to the Monday Ramblers website you'll have to use the BACK ARROW key.  Sorry, this is the best I can do with this website.
