Forestry roads

Hello my name is Shawn I started the off-road enforcement program for the LA county sheriff's department. When I started up the program 21 years ago Forestry service gave me a stack of maps that had all of the forestry road numbers and the trail numbers on them. I am now retired but I still assist on off road search and rescues in Santa Clarita because I know the area so well. I am looking for GPS programs that have the forestry road numbers and trail road numbers on them for example the Sequoia national Forest. I'm finding it impossible to find a GPS maps programs that has all the forestry road numbers and all of the single track trail numbers on it do any of your packages have this?

Thank you for your time

    Hi Shawn,

    Thanks for reaching out! We offer a wide range of base layers, including Forest Service maps. I would recommend navigating to the area you are interested in (in this case Sequoia National Forest) and switching through the different base layers to see if any of them display the specific data you are looking for. You can view descriptions of our different base layers here as well as instructions for working with them here.

    If you aren't finding the data you want on any of our available base layers and you have PDFs of the data you do want, you can display that data as a Map Sheet in CalTopo. This does require a pro, desktop or team account but it can be a great option for displaying local data such as single track trail numbers. You can learn more about Map Sheets here.

    Thank you,
