Now that you know how to choose a map, let’s learn how to use it! Darren Edwards of Trail Hiking Australia knows a thing or two about maps, and is here to share his knowledge. With some basic knowledge and a good ol’ compass, you’ll be steering the way in no time.
I often meet other hikers on the trail who seem confused about their location or direction of travel. Most are not carrying a map and simply expect that their will be an obvious trail or markers to define the way. Other people I meet have a map but simply cannot read it.
Knowing how to read a map isn’t difficult, for most people, given training, a bit of practise and continual use. The symbols, topography lines and direction helpers all might require a little understanding, but the answers are all right there! We’ll show you how to find the key to finding your way!
