The core of this map is based on: Idaho's ARCGIS Map
linked from parksandrecreation.idaho.gov and from sources like: trails.idaho.gov. Additional sources are credited below.
Obvious differences in trail routing/data are from personal on-trail experiences (mile zero to mile 155) or changes preceived from credited sources.
Mileages were created at gpsvisualizer.com and are NOT OFFICIAL.

Consolidated Notes for this Trail Map
Comming soon(er or later).
Map suggests several locations for water caches on the lower 90 miles. If you are going to drive down there, drop off some water.
Additional water could easily be placed between mile 142 and 96 by camping at mile 142 on a prior day. Mile 142 can be reached from Fairfield via a direct route
Outfitter, Barker River Expeditions may be able to help with placing water caches in lower 90 miles. In season, it would be an easy drop near map-miles 33, 64, and 70.
Note: Waypoint Positions and GPS Tracks reflect information gathered from
various sources and will vary somewhat from real world locations. Expect trailheads,campsites, and water crossings to vary as much as a half-mile.
This data can eaisly be load onto the $5 MapOut app although there are currently problems with matching 'icons'.
