I'm new to Sartopo/Caltopo, and I'm wondering how to find a legend for the maps with the online interface. Or if I could add a generic legend with trail types, that would also be great.

    It varies depending on the layer selected. For the USGS layer, see For MapBuilder Topo, trails are red and roads are black, with unimproved roads as dashed black lines. MapBuilder Overlay uses a slightly different style so that it's easier to read on top of aerial imagery, but it still follows USGS conventions, e.g. red for more major roads and white for less-major roads.
