Used them a few times on road trips
...but I still prefer more detailed maps, for instance Forest Service or BLM maps.

Love My Atlas
I've been using my New York Atlas for a a few years now and I love it. I always make sure I have this along with me when I go up there. Great detail, I've never had to use another NY map for traveling around since I got this. Of course, for hiking, climbing, etc., you'll want more detail. But for it's intended purpose, this can't be beat. Highly recommended!

Good Companion
I always have one with me when I venture out. Great source along with other TOPO map programs.

Hit and miss
Some atlases are very detailed while others leave much to be desired. The Oregon Atlas has all forest service roads labeled and current, while the Northern California atlas shows dirt roads and trails as the same dashed red line, with no labeling. Best bet is to thumb through one before purchase.

Essential
These are absolutely essential for dirtbag camping (and cost the same as a Forest Service campsite these days), and work in a pinch for hiking and climbing. While they're sometimes outdated, this can be a good thing: the CA gazetteer shows the abandoned but useful Milestone Basin and Marie Lakes trails.
