The Mount Skokomish -Lake Cushman map is centered on the Mount Skokomish Wilderness in Olympic National Forest. It includes all of the trails in the southeast corner of the Olympic Mountains in Washington State, USA. It includes all of Lake Cushman, and the adjacent trails in Olympic National Park.
This map covers the entire North Fork Skokomish River Trail, and all it's connecting trails from Staircase to the Headwaters of the DuckabushRiver. It includes Lena and Upper Lena Lakes, and Lake of the Angels, and the high country connecting them. It includes the entire Mount Ellinor, Mount Washington, and Mount Rose trail systems. Using an inset, it includes the entire lower South Fork Skokomish River trail system.
Trails are more accurate and up-to-date than any other published map we are aware of.
This area was mapped especially poorly on previous maps, and is inconveniently cut-up by quad boundaries. Many trails and popular cross-country routes would have required at least two quads. Several trails were previously unmapped. Mount Skokomish - Lake Cushman puts them all conveniently and accurately on one map with no compromise in scale or detail.
Lake Cushman and Lake Kokanee are both shown in their entirety, and include depth countours showing the shape of the lake bottom.
National Forest Roads are up-to-date, with current road numbers.
Private land is identified with a shading pattern.
Mount Skokomish - Lake Cushman is one of four Custom Correct (tm) maps that have been adopted by the Olympic National Forest as their official Wilderness Maps. Rather than create a separate map series at taxpayer expense, the US Forest Service chose the best maps on the market, and contracted to place their Wilderness information on the back. This special relationship has continued since 1986.
Woodland shading has been updated from recent aerial photos and 7.5 minute maps to more accurately show vegetation patterns near timberline, as well as timber harvest patterns, wildfires and other changes not shown on USGS or other commercial maps.
