Topo Quads

Tonto Rim Search and Rescue Squad thanks Superstition Search & Rescue, Apache Junction, AZ for help with the maps. Without them and in particular, Shari and Ian Erickson, this wouldn't have been possible.

Maps and Navigation Tools

The map below shows the topographic quadrangles (7.5 minute) that cover the Tonto Rim Search and Rescue Squad's area.  To download a pdf version of a given quadrangle, simply click on the appropriate quad name. If you do not have the Adobe Acrobat Reader, you may download the free pdf viewer here

On 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.

Note:  Official 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 Tonto National Forest Service directly for current road conditions whenever driving into the backcountry.
