Still, the map is worth having for sure.
No point to point mileage.
We used Lost Coast Shuttles for a ride from Shelter Cove to Mattole Beach, and they give you a free map that is probably
in turn from the BLM/Forest Service, and that map is excellent.
Once we realized how bad this map was and how good the free one was and we needed kindling, we, well, burned this map with no regrets.
Having said this, there are details that I would have liked to be on this map that were absent. For example, that there is a generous parking area at the black beach trailhead (if you turn right into Beach Road when driving into Shelter Cove) with a drinking water fountain and restrooms is not marked on the map. The path on the beach is delineated with a doted line just running along the coast - which is true - but, if you hiking north from Shelter Cove, the trail actually comes into existence (I mean, a path sporting solid, compact ground, which is paradise after shifting sand and boulder hopping) at the very start of Big Flat. At this point, you need to climb up the cliff for 5 ft to actually get to it, and if you do not know where to climb up, you will miss it and continue to trot on along the beach. This path is not visible from the beach at sea level . I would have loved a hint where to look for the way up - but there is none on this map. Also, if you are into maps and navigation by compass (although there might be not much need for it while walking along the beach..), grid lines on this map are absent. And so are points you could use to triangulate. These are just some examples where the map could have provided some more detail.
Overall, buy it if you are a map-kind-of-person, otherwise burn the money on some delicious trail food. The snacks might be the better investment.
