Topographic Map Samples
 
Below is a small area sample of a USGS Digital Raster Graphic 1:24,000 scale (7.5 minute) map with updated trails overlaid on it.  Other information that is not shown could include waypoints, links to notes and pictures, small text notes for mileages, etc., and symbols for parking lots, campgrounds, and more.

Topographic Trail Map


Below is another sample of a topographic map with updated trails on it plus waypoints.  The solid purple line, which is also slightly wider, represents a double (wider than normal) track trail.  The dashed purple line represents a primary single track trail.  Portions of a primary trail may become primitive at times.  The dashed red line represents a trail that is fairly primitive.  The dotted black line represents an old road in one case and a miscellaneous or "other" trail in the case of the trail by the stream/camp.  The particular program/version that did the overlay for these images didn't break the solid line into dashed lines very well when zoomed out.  Other programs will be different.

Below is a closeup of the topographic map of the Hartenstein Lake area with waypoints.  The dashed red line represents a trail that is fairly primitive.  The dashed purple line represents primary single track trail.  Portions of a primary trail may become primitive at times.
