The map's out & going in the shops already.

I hope you enjoy it all & it renews everyone's interest in the famous Mae Hong Son Loop.

As to be expected Pai city & Environs maps have had a massive work over. The Mae Hong Son & Mae Sarieng city maps also have many new places on them.

There are heaps of new dirt trails on the map & many thanks go to GT Riders & others who contributed. In particular thank you
• Auke Koopmans the GT Rider (& everyone’s) GPS expert
• Dave Dirty
• Happy Feet
• Big & Tall
• Moto-Rex
• Silverhawk

FOR DIRT RIDERS
New areas you should look at (& explore) are
1. North of R1095 Pai - Wiang Haeng - Mae Lana
2. North of R1095 Huay Nam Dang - Muang Khong / Wiang Haeng
3. South of R1095 the fantastic Doi Mae Ya - Samoeng
4. North of R1263 Mae Na Chon - Wat Chan / Huai Pu Ling
5. East – south-east of Mae Chaem – Chomthong

For inexperienced dirt riders when exploring the 4WD only tracks ride with a mate. Don’t ride alone.
The same for the few single track trails. Don’t go alone. Don’t ride them the wet season. Go with a local guide is best!

The topo on this map is a dark colour, black-grey, & may look a little dull indoors, but outside in the sun where you use the map the most the colours & data are outstanding.

Take your time on the MHS Loop, don't rush. There's scores of wonderful places to visit & dirt trails to explore.

Happy trails to you all.
