    Thanks, Dejoha! I've already downloaded a couple of topos and bookmarked the site. Good find!

    For those of you with an IPhone, IPod Touch or IPad, there is an app called "Topo Map" (odd, eh?!) that will download these onto your gadget, and display them for you. I have it on my IPad, and have spent many happy hours reviewing old hikes, or planning new ones!

    These are awesome maps with 2010 data and sat imagery with topo map features and I'd like to print them out, but I can't print a document that large and the 8.5x11 size kills all the detail.
    With adobe acrobat, you can print oversized documents by tiling them. That's what I did and then taped the map together.

    Nice map, we did a HF hike/camp just north of the fish hatchery. Very beautiful country. That trial runs about 50miles just below the rim

    I remember the planning for that one, but I couldn't make it.

    Hey, how about a trip to Bear Canyon Lake this spring?

    I hear ya. I just love maps, and getting a full-sized topo was just too much to keep to myself.

    Thanks. I only have the Acrobat Reader. I'll have to look into this tiling process. There are probably other programs to use.

    Thanks for the link. These are great maps.
