    Does anyone know of a way to automatically ‘map’ sections of a trail when you zoom in online using a service like alltrails, or gaia?  I’d like to zoom in and print out a map, but at a zoomed in scale AFAIK you have to manually link the sections together by sight / estimation.

    It’s not automatic but CalTopo does let you layout and setup multiple pages at a time. Still a manual process but about the best option I have come across.

    I’m not sure what the original question is exactly but I print out my pages from Caltopo like Brian shows. I think carefully about overlap and try to ensure there are landmarks visible on each page (peaks ideally).

    Additionally, I often rearrange the pages carefully in the PDF before printing double-sided. I try to avoid having adjacent maps printed on the back of the previous page so that I can overlap two maps in the field.

    So do you need to have a subscription beyond free in caltopo to do the multi-page layout?

    You do not need the Pro version to do multi-page printing. You don’t even need to login, just go to caltopo.com and start mapping.  However, you will be limited to page size (8.5×11) and detail (200 dpi).
