Please note the RWGPS route map is provided for informational purposes.  Also, it may prove useful as a supplemental navigational aide for those using GPS.  It is not recommended to use a GPS unit as the primary navigational tool.  The cue-sheet is provided for this purpose.  While we have made an effort to make the map accurate we cannot guarantee it will guide a rider correctly over the entire route.  In addition, it will not be able to inform riders of control points or road hazards.
