Eastern High Peaks Map

Does anyone have a boundary description of the Eastern High Peaks? I found a DEC map that zones out the Eastern and Western but it is somewhat obscure. A Google map with boundary overlay would be ideal. Thanks!

Yes, the DEC map is hard to read. I have not found a map from DEC that shows that boundary with accurate reference points, like topo lines.

The word definition from DEC is:

"Eastern High Peaks Zone means that portion of the High Peaks Wilderness Area located to the east of the ridge line immediately west of the Indian Pass Trail."

So I would take that as the Nye/Street/Lost Pond Peak/Wallface/McNaughton ridge. Sort of looks like that on the map:

Unfortunately the DEC map doesn't include the new acquisitions. For example, can we assume south of Henderson Lake, the boundary is the road?
