 Balsam Lake Mt hiking map Explore the world of topographic maps.

  They tell us a lot about the land around us.

A ‘topo’ map shows the shape of the Earth’s surface with contour lines.  These lines make it possible to measure the height of mountains and steepness of slopes – great information for anyone planning a hike or a fishing outing.

  BRING a favorite trail or fishing map with topo features to share, show others a particular map feature you like – or just come!

This will be a relaxed gathering for map enthusiasts; beginners are welcome.  Light refreshments.
