Backyard and Beyond: Purple Lizard Maps

Welcome to the first installment of the Backyard and Beyond video series. For our first effort, we visit with Purple Lizard Maps. Purple Lizard Maps was created in the mid-1990’s by Michael Herman. Herman, a longtime mountain biker began compiling trail maps in an effort to improve on the trail user experience. Join us as we join Herman, Trail Guru Dave Gantz and four-legged trail shredder Karma the dog on their home turf in central Pennsylvania. Together we explore some of Pennsylvania’s trails and get a glimpse into Purple Lizards award-winning process for designing maps to enhance the outdoor experience.

  1. Nice story and good video. I own several Purple Lizard Maps (they are terrific, by the way) and always wondered about Michael and the company.
