So how hard is it to follow this trail? I have done a lot of ATV riding on the ATV trails that you have ridden on during this trip. I am planning to ride the T.W.A.T. this summer with my father on our dual sports. We will have a topographical GPS and standard paper maps.

What I did was read this thread by inmate rokklym. This is the first one I read and got me interested in doing the T.W.A.T. If you visit the loan wolf expeditions website, I sent him an email and he graciously and generously sent me the Garmin file. That is what I used as a reference to do the below highlight on the paper maps.

Now as for the maps. I don't like to use my Garmin unless I don't feel that available paper maps are adequate. However, I did the the whole route using detailed county paper maps that I downloaded off from here(for free). They are in PDF format and I just took them to an Office Max and they printed them off on 11"x17" paper so all the fire road numbers were big enough to read. They were also in color. I just highlighted the route on the paper maps and took off.

To answer your original question, no I don't think you will have any problem following the route.

Thanks OONER. I will start highlighting my route soon. I can't wait for a chunk of time this summer to try it out.
