Alan's Trail Maps

The links below will take you to a series of detailed trail maps created by retired school teacher Alan Perrie as part of his Vertical Mile Challenge. You can print them out or download them to your smart phone.

They also stand alone as the most concise and detailed Burlington trail maps anywhere to be found.

There are 2 major hike categories: Class 1 = hiking, but no climbing where hands need to be used. Class 2 = hiking and some climbing which requires the use of hands & careful foot placement.
