I have a garmin 64st and have read about maps exclusive to specific trails, PCT, PNT, CDT, AT, that include way pionts to water sources, campgrounds.
I plan to section Hike some of these trails, so I am curious where they are available and if anyone has used them, or am I just dreaming?

PNW trails association puts out maps. I believe they update each year. Presumably too early for 2020 edition.

If you buy one of the atlases, you can download a GPX file with track and waypoints (including water locations, etc) for the atlas you purchased.

I haven't used them, but I've heard of lots of people using Halfmile's maps. It looks like they have GPS data you can download which appears to include waypoints.

I've used Halfmile's maps, both paper and with the accompanying waypoints and liked them a lot. It says on his web site that he used a high end surveyors' GPS to create them, so they should be really accurate. However, he may have stopped updating them. It should say on his web site.
