Jim Parham 

In 1992, Jim Parham’s Off the Beaten Track—A Guide to Mountain Biking in Western North Carolina was the first mountain bike trail guide published for anywhere in the Southeast. We produced it on a Macintosh LC with a whopping 40mb hard drive, using Aldus Pagemaker and the draw program bundled with Microsoft Works. Jim drew the maps freehand on the computer with a push-button mouse. “I held the button down as I drew, and if I let up before I was finished, I lost all my work—we were on the cutting edge,” he recalls. His work required a focus and precision that’s been applied to every Milestone Press guidebook since. That first title was followed by more mountain bike guides, then road bicycling, motorcycling, and hiking guidebooks by other authors. Today we continue to produce print guidebooks that keep pace with the evolution of outdoor adventure sports and development of trail networks on public lands.
