Quinault -
Colonel Bob

Updated: 2009!

Scale 1:62,500
(1 inch to the mile)

Contour Interval: 80 feet

The Quinault - Colonel Bob map includes the North Fork of the Quinault River, including Low Divide and the Skyline Trail in the southwest corner of Olympic National Park, as well as the Colonel Bob Wilderness in Olympic National Forest, in the Olympic Mountains in Washington State, USA. 

This map was totally rebuilt digitally in 2009. It now shows an incredibly three dimensional shaded relief behind all the usual map information. It covers the North Fork Quinault and Skyline Trail Systems to and including Low Divide and the surrounding area, providing several loop trips. It covers the entire Colonel Bob Wilderness, and all it's trails (the only large scale topographic map to do so). It includes the campgrounds and nature trails in the Lake Quinault Area, and all the roads leading into the mountains from there, both to North Fork and Graves Creek.

Special Features:

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. This is the only single large scale topographic map of the Colonel Bob Wilderness, (it's at the intersection of four quads.)

NEW! The inset showing Lake Quinault has been expanded to include nearly the entire Lake, and the main map has been extended to the south to include the entire upper Humptulips River Trail.

Woodland shading has been updated from recent satellite imagery, and recent aerial photos to more accurately show  vegetation patterns near timberline, as well as  wildfires and other changes not shown on USGS or other commercial maps.

Map coordinates are placed on the North American Datum of 1983 (NAD83), and UTM coordinates are shown compatible with the National Coordinate System, with a full line UTM grid.

Private land is identified with a shading pattern.
