I'm looking to geocache on mountain bike trails located in England Idlewild Mountain Biking Park, near Burlington, Kentucky, and Mitchell Forest, near Miamitown, Ohio.  I can't find any maps with trails on them in these parks, any advice on where to find them?  I use Mapsource and have Oregon 450 handheld.  Thanks!  Great site by the way, 2 thumbs up.

Do any of the parks publish online or paper brochures with trail maps? If so, you can either download or scan the maps and create a Garmin "custom map" this way: http://www8.garmin.com/outdoor/custommaps_instruct.pdf

This Google Earth technique works well for relatively small maps. For larger maps, there are some programs which make it easier.

Thanks, I'll give it a try, that should work for my purposes.  I'll post back if I have any other questions but that looks pretty easy.
