Found this useful map site. I'm in western WA and the terrain here is crazy. Topo maps are a must heading into the woods. The tools are great and you can drill down to 1:24,000 quadrangle maps.

Hey. I started this thread and have found a much better app. AventaMaps. All of the USGS quad topo maps 1:24000 for free. It tracks with gps so no need for cell reception. Works great. I don't have reception hiking just compass so hairs stand up once and while. This is a great app.

Love their maps.  Have been using them for a while.  I was always curious as to how high the neighbors bluff was compared to our land.  Our marsh is at 1000ft above sea level, our tallest point is the edge of the neighbors bluff at 1180ft, and the neighbor's bluff reaches 1321ft.  Pretty insane dropoff on one end as well from 1321ft to 1120ft in a very small distance.

Thanks. That is good stuff, Jeff.  The USGS definitely has the best maps, coming from a (long time ago) geography major.
