Which ones? Rivermaps website has quite a few for the larger permitted rivers around the west.

It's been a while since I haven't had the time, but at one point I was trying to approximate my own by using Google Eath and other map sources to locate them. For example, I have the Arkansas River Guide book, so using his maps and descriptions, I could locate them on Google and get pretty close I think. At one point, I had some for Pumphouse all mapped out and ready to go, then I got a new computer an wiped them all out... LOL

In addition to doing some of the best trip reports, photos and documentation on southwestern US rivers I have ever seen, this guy has put together some great downloadable waypoint files for the GPSr. Highly recommended. I can only dream of documenting my river trips like this guy.

rivermaps vote

get the rivermap guide for the river you want, then down load their gps waypoints that match up to their guidebook.

I am a big fan of their products, highly recommend them
