I have used Benchmark maps for the past 14 years. They are the most detailed atlases I’ve ever seen. They are more adventure-friendly than any other atlas I’ve used and they are an excellent companion to GPS based systems as they show you deserted mines, ghost towns, land artworks and also public land (for impromptu camping). They are also excellent resources for side trips down dirt roads when you wonder to yourself “Where does that dirt road go?” as they require no batteries, mobile network or GPS signal.

The atlases only exist for the American western states. I own the California, Colorado, Nevada and Utah atlases. I keep all four in my truck at all times.
