Are trails and/or symbols clearly shown on U.S. Forest Service maps? Where is the legend?

Trails and symbols are clearly shown on USDA Forest Service maps. A comprehensive legend appears on each map. Since each map is unique, placement of the legend and symbolization might vary from map to map.

Order paper maps for individual national forests using the online USGS Store. Enter the name of the forest in the search window at the top of the website or in the Find a Map section, or select Forest Service Visitor Maps from the Products/Maps and Publications section.
