I'm building a trail map, and the only map that seems to have the rivers in the correct shape is the map builder hybrid base layer. Is it possible to use this basemap in Qgis for my project

    If you have a Pro, Desktop or Team subscription, you can import custom layers into a GIS program. You may need to look up instructions for how to do this in Qgis specifically but here is a blog post on the CalTopo side of things to get you started:

    I hope this helps answer your question!
