most of these maps, you'll see faint red grid lines, with each box
labeled with a red number. These are Sections and serve as the basic
unit of the Public Land Survey System (PLSS). Each Section is one
square mile and contains 640 acres of land. There are 36 sections
in each township, thus each township is 6 square miles. Townships
are described by township and range lines. Township lines run east
to west and measure north or south of a principal base line.
Inversely, range lines run north to south and are used to measure
east or west of a principal meridian. Use the following link to
learn more about the
Public Land Survey System.
wilderness trails as well as miscellaneous routes have been added to
the following topographic maps. Dotted red lines indicate
unofficial routes (trails, pack trails, or even 4WD routes) and may
not be accurate. Additionally, roads have been added. Solid gray
lines indicate well maintained roads, and dashed gray lines are
either partially maintained roads or 4WD routes that may or may not
be accessible. Please contact the
National Forest Service directly for current road conditions
whenever driving into the backcountry.
