Destination Atlas-Washington - Benchmark (Benchmark Road & Recreation Atlas)by Benchmark Maps
Synopses & Reviews
Introducing a new standard of mapmaking, Benchmark's brand new Washington Road & Recreation Atlas offers a readily understood and clear picture of the road network in the state. Its regional scale (three miles to an inch or 1:200,000) suits the speed of travel by car, even on meandering back roads. The Washington Road & Recreation Atlasa uses a color coded hierarchy to effectively distinguish the main highways and through roads from backcountry and minor public and private roads.
Benchmark field checkers visited every county in Washington, driving over 30,000 miles, to verify the accuracy and the maps and information. They interviewed state and county road officials, Park and Forest Service rangers, State Park officials, and other government sources to gather and verify field data. They crisscrossed Washington's roads searching out the kind of information travelers seek most.
The Atlas features 80 pages of award-winning Landscape Maps and a separate 22-page Recreation Guide with a full complement of recreation categories. The Recreation Guide has its own set of new maps with complete public land information. A special Seattle Metropolitan Recreation Guide with enlarged map and expanded recreation categories is also included.
Whether planning a short day trip into a city or an extended road trip along the coast, be sure to take along Benchmark's Washington Road & Recreation Atlas, featuring Landscape Maps?...from the atlas series acclaimed as the most accurate, useful, and beautiful ever published.
