Swiss map publisher swisstopo (phone +45 58 469 01 11, www.swisstopo.admin.ch) released new, updated hiking maps in August. The printed maps (scaled so that 1cm = 0.5 km), are color-coded corresponding to signage on the trails: red for hiking, yellow for mountain hiking and blue for Alpine hiking. Also indicated are SwitzerlandMobility hiking routes for those with mobility issues.

There are maps for 58 regions. Visit shop.swisstopo.admin.ch/en/products/maps/leisure_maps/hiking_maps/hiking_maps50. Each costs CHF22.50 (near $23).
