Summary: How to find a road when you don't know it's name.

Instructions:
I'm assuming you can spot the correct road or trail if you saw it on a map. So we're going to use GMap. There are GMap links on every mountain and town page. So we search for a nearby mountain or town, and then click "GMap". Once we have the map, we can click on the road. Here are the step by step details:

  1. Use the front page search to search for a nearby mountain or town.

  2. On the page for that mountain or town, click "GMap"
     This will bring up a topo map with the Bivouac roads superimposed on it.

  3. Click on the road
     The way GMap works, unfortunately you can't click on the road line itself, you have to click on the small green icons that are spaced along the road every km. When you click on one of these icons, a box pops up with a link to the title of the road.

  4. Click on the title
     This brings up the road page
