http://dlia.sunsite.utk.edu/park-maps (Click GeoPDF park map)
Its very large, takes a minute to download, and a little while to fully load, but once its done, you have all the detailed quads in 1 file, rather than seperate files.

This map is better, in my opinion, than the trails illustrated map. If you have access to a high resolution color plotter, you've got yourself a free map.

Grannyknot, this is an excellent map download, Thank you

Grannyknot, thanks for the info. Kudos to Ben for a job well done.

A powerful feature of the document is its GeoPDF functionality, which requires the free TerraGo desktop plug-in. Free GeoPDFs donwloads of the original individual quads, in high resoultion, are available from the USGS Map Locator page. With these maps and Ben's, the TerraGo plug-in displays lon/lat and UTM coordinates in text boxes at the bottom right and change as the cursor moves over the map area. Sweet!

One day I may develop a similar application (long for "app") whereby the fish species present is displayed as the cursor moves over a stream. Version 2.0 would display the hatch in progress..
