BRITISH COLUMBIA BACKCOUNTRY GPS MAPS

GPS Features

The province of BC is an outdoor lover’s dream. From the mountainous kingdom that surrounds the world-famous city of Vancouver, to the Pacific Ocean playground lining BC’s coast, to the adventures of BC’s interior from wine country in the Okanagan Valley into the Rocky Mountains as their jagged peaks proliferate in the east, and north into the untapped wilderness that crowds out human civilization for mile upon beautiful mile – BC pulses with natural life. The province epitomizes outdoor recreation, with boundless opportunities for hiking, biking, camping, paddling, fishing, snowmobiling, skiing, snowboarding, ATVing, wildlife viewing, hunting, and more. For the outdoor adventurer, BC offers a lifetime of backcountry exploration – and we put it all on the map.

Map Legend

Unique to the Backroad GPS Maps are our enhanced road classifications that help you distinguish the highways from the logging roads and the main roads from the side roads. This extra level of road classification helps you to know which roads can be driven in a car and which ones should be left to a four-wheel drive vehicle or ATV. In addition, we offer more recreational points and symbols than any other map source. From RV accessible to backcountry campsites, hiking to snowmobiling trailheads, fishing to paddling access points, we have your adventure covered. Our area classifications include mines and gravel pits, conservation and restricted areas, and a host of other features that help you to see where you can play.

More Roads and Trails

No other GPS map source has as many roads or trails as the Backroad GPS Maps, and we have the statistics to prove it. In addition, you will find we offer better road classifications to help you distinguish main industrial or logging roads from those rarely travelled side or unclassified roads. Further, we separate trails into multi-use for hikers, bikers, horseback riders, cross-country skiers and more, as well as ATV/motorized trails and snowmobile trails. This information is continually updated, expanded and refined, so be sure to take advantage of our update program.
