Default Topo Maps

Anyone have any good pointers where you can download 1:50,000 topo maps with UTM guidelines on them for US locations? Checked the USGS site and it looks like their 7.5 minute image maps are all 1:24,000 that I can find.

The 15 min quads are 1:62,500...Why the need for 1:50k?

Play around with it you can find what you want. No it’s not easy find and you’ll have to dig.

Check out Avenza maps

https://www.avenzamaps.com/

You download maps (they claim to have access to almost 1 million maps) ahead of time storing them on your device so no internet connection is required. Some are free some cost $$

Turn on your device GPS and you now have interactive maps with lots of features.

Thanks for getting me started. Just spent about an hour perusing map sites. Got to USGS Topo maps and commenced downloading and screenshotting. Just to get a start and see what I want.

Used the gov paper topo maps as a kid for backpacking.

My go-to ,always works map App.
Using it offline in the desert or mountains I've never been disappointed .
When searching the app for maps to download you can filter for only free maps to purchase and download .

I separate areas into different folder for quick use . Most my maps were free , but you will find many worth purchasing.
