Best Onion Valley map?

Postby Sam Page » Thu Nov 12, 2009 1:12 am

What is the best map of the peaks around Onion Valley (Independence, University, Gould, Dragon, Kearsarge, etc.) that can be purchased online? I need it soon . . .

I have Tom Harrison's Sequoia and King's Canyon map, but the Onion Valley region is not covered in sufficient detail.

If my memory serves me correctly, one of the maps from the John Muir Trail Map Pack (Tom Harrison) covers the onion valley area...

I don't know if it has enough detail for what you need it for, but it is a good place to start. I bought the set before I hiked the JMT, but they have come in handy for several other trips as well...

If you don't have it already, I recommend TOPO! You can print any area fully customized to your needs. I love it!

Harrison has a Kearsarge Pass-Rae Lakes Loop map which has a scale of 1:42K. I think this covers the areas you're interested in?

The Harrison Sequoia/Kings Canyon map has a scale of 1:125K.

Check out Bob Burd's website (www.snwburd.com) he usually has good maps of all the hikes he has done (which will include every peak in the Onion Valley area).
