While it is our hope and endeavor that the G.E.T. Topo Map Set will
allow experienced hikers to avoid most navigational problems and will
contribute to a rewarding adventure along the route, we do not guarantee
the 100% accuracy of these maps and waypoints and assume no responsibility
for their use or misuse. Hiking and backpacking are inherently risky
activities, so be sure to use these maps as part of an overall approach
to maintaining safety in the backcountry, and do not assume their
endorsement of a particular road, trail, or creek crossing, etc. Conditions
in the field can change, sometimes quickly, and property boundaries
can be redrawn to exclude public access. In short, use the maps and
benefit from them, but use your skills and your awareness too. And
always keep your options open when determining the safest and most
practical direction of travel.
