BdCast (or any anyone else interested). The Mountaineers has a large set of Robert Kinzebach Pic-Tour maps covering many areas of the Cascades and Olympic mountains. A couple copies of each map are in the permanent collection but there are lots of spares. If anyone wants a paper set of these maps PM me. I will need to get a set together and then you can pick them up at the Mountaineers facility (or pay me to send it via mail - probably not worth it).
You can browse an online inventory of the maps here at the section labelled "Robert Kinzebach Pic-Tour Guide maps"
Here's a good example of lost trails on these maps. It shows trails past Sunday Lake (North Fork Snoqualmie) to Honey and Mowitch Lake. Also an indication of how far one could drive up the Quartz Creek road in those days (1980s).
While it is nice to go online to pour over old maps I much prefer a paper copy in hand. I can provide copies of the following if any one is interested.

1918 Wenatchee NF
Metskers that predate the red and yellow envelope versions, guessing the 50s.

Just pay for copying and postage.
Would be interested in paying for copies of anything interesting from your collection.
-------------- Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,I took the one less traveled by. And that has made all the difference.
Washington State LiDAR portal - Even the online viewer is really useful, but the real fun is in the raw data. Fragments of abandoned roads and trails are often visible in the DTM hillshade layer. ("DTM" is a model of the earth's surface, with all vegetation removed.) Coverage is surprisingly good.
