There's quality WATERPROOF printed version of this map available for sale at local bike shop (Santiam Bicycle) or Venti's Cafe in Salem, Oregon or you can pick one up at the A&N Home Town Grocery store in Falls City, Oregon.    Proceeds from map sales go to BRMBA / Black Rock trails for ongoing trail maintenance and projects.
