The map looks really nice,
I'm not sure what is going on with your contour lines, they appear to break in spots, also since you have gone to the effort in having them, you could indicate the contour interval in the legend.
Instead of using the same line symbol for Sam's Point Preserve... and Other protected areas. I would suggest choosing a different line pattern.
You could move the North arrow up to the top right corner to fill in some of that empty space.
Some of your text, such as "Mt.Meenahga Road" could have the kerning increased, the characters are just very close together.
Have a good day,
Really nice looking map! Will serve well, even when run over a photo copier a couple of times except for the gray shading of the exterior area. But with the distinct border line still no problem.
Like Promapper already asked - what kind of hillshading did you employ?

That's a great looking map Brad! Good work.
My nitpicky comments are reserved for the fairly high visual hierarchy of the trail segment markers. They look a little chunky to me - like they need to go on a diet. There's a funky unattached road segment at the top and perhaps not enough of a distinction (width/shade) b/w roads and hydro - it get a little confusing in Ellenville and near the hwy 209 symbol, but I like the tapered effect! I can see by the trail names why you would want to use color but since the Long Path is a trail like the other trails I am wondering why it's symbol isn't black like the others?
I had heard about rock climbing in the 'Gunks and clicked around a bit and found this map (1.8Mb) which looks like an earlier version? Since it is a rather cliffy area I think I like deeper shading.
