USGS 7.5 Minute Topographic Quadrangles

National Geographic is allowing everyone to easily download any USGS 7.5 minute topo map in the continental U.S. as a multi-page PDF that can be printed on letter size paper on any printer. These are the same topographic maps that were published by the U.S. Geological Survey for decades, with nice additional features from their much-loved, but discontinued TOPO! software product, including:

  • Page 1: is an index map showing each of the printable quarter-quad maps in their broader context
  • Pages 2-5: are the topo quarter-quads, sized and scaled to print on US-letter size paper
  • Hillshading has been added to help visualize the topography.


NOTE: Since the USGS stopped updating their printed topos decades ago, some of these maps do not accurately reflect the current landscape. For the most detailed and up-to-date maps of popular outdoors recreation areas, we recommend their Trails Illustrated maps.

We have provided an easy to use application that allows you to search by address, quadrangle number, and quadrangle name. User can also pan, zoom, and identify the USGS 7.5 Minute Topographic Quadrangle. We have also included buttons for those users who wish to review the Illustrated Trail Maps and Bundle Packages.
