Use the 'Download Maps for Track, Route, or Area' feature to download an offline map that follows your track or route or area. This downloads 5 map tiles (individual images that make up a digital map) on either side of your route or track. Because the tile size is different for different sources, the width of the map may vary slightly depending on the selected map source and the location of the track/route/area.
1. Find a saved track, route, or area from the Saved menu.
2. Tap the item in the list to open the details page.
3. Tap More and choose "Download Maps for Track/Route/Area."
4. Select a map sources to download and desired resolution
I've tried this, but it doesn't seem to work! First it takes a (very) long time before my Iphone had calculated the download size for the maps, and then the 'lightest' version I can download is still 22GB! Am I doing someting wrong?
robtexel, it looks like you have a very long route -- the entire continental divide trail. For this, you may not be able to download the whole route at once.

You can un-archive your maps when you need them.
Hi Ashli, it sort of worked to download the maps, had to lower the zoom rate though. Hope this still gives enough detail to find my way along the route! Thanks for your help!
if I download maps for a track, is there any way to confirm that they are there or view them?
Yes, you can verify your offline maps have downloaded by following these steps:
