Find All Three! - Map Detective

Posted in Events on October 1, 2007
Share this

This month you are going to have to figure out more than just one item. You have to submit correct answers for the following three questions:
1) What body of water is pictured here?
2) What famous trail system is found nearby?
3) What is the official name for this trail system according to the State of California?
That last one might be tricky for some. Do your best using your Map Detective skills to find the answers. As always, we encourage people to try and not use the Internet for help!

The Rules
Each month we will share with you a partial section to a topographic map that locates a national park, body of water, trail system, mountain range, or another outdoor destination somewhere in the continental United States. The secret location can only be discovered by looking for clues in the magazine. We will be hiding a select number of words within the pages of each issue that will give you clues revealing the secret location. We will inform you every month how many words you need to be searching for. Should your detective and mapping skills help you locate the destination, send us an e-mail immediately to, and if you're the first with the correct answer, you win! Please include in the subject line of your e-mail which month you're submitting an answer for. Each month of Map Detective (12 months) has a specified start date and end date. These dates are listed on 4WD&SU's website at Answers received before those dates will not be considered. The first participant to e-mail the correct answer after any specified start date for that month will win. Complete rules for the contest can be found on 4WD&SU's website.

The Clues
This month you'll be searching the magazine for four separate clues. These words or phrases will stand out from normal text in a different color and bold. They can be found anywhere and on any page except for within an advertisement. These words can either form a sentence or be separate descriptive words providing distinct clues.
