USGS Topo Maps
USGS Maps of Washington are the trusty companions of hikers, explorers, and the occasional lost soul in the great Pacific Northwest. The distinctive feature of these topographic trail maps is that the shape of the Earth's surface are shown by contour lines, these are imaginary lines that join points of equal elevation on the surface of the land above or below a reference surface, such as mean sea level. Contour lines make it possible to measure the height of mountains, ocean depths and steepness of slopes.
Picture this: you're standing at the trailhead, armed with your backpack, water bottle, enthusiasm, and, of course, your USGS Topographic Map. You unfurl your prized scroll and marvel at the intricate contour lines, the hills, the valleys, the streams...and your adventure awaits!
