San Sevaine Service Roads

Is there a map of some sort one of you guys might have on hand? I just came back from my usual spot off one of the service roads to go shooting, but I'm not sure of the specific roads I'm taking. Anyone have a map? It'd be greatly appreciated  Razz

Also, I'm new to these forums, so if this is posted in the wrong section or something like that, I apologize in advance

Try CalTopo.  The FS road numbers are in red in a rectangle.

That's actually really useful, thanks! However, I'm looking for a map that shows the routes and names of the service roads. I know these service roads run all throughout these mountains, and I figured it'd be very helpful to have one on hand.
HikeUp

huh?

Can you give an example of a road these maps are missing?

Maybe I'm not seeing the map right, but what I'm looking for is a map of these dirt roads that follow the power lines that are used when they need to repair the power lines.

Are there power lines around the San Sevaine road? There're some that run along the southern foothills and up Lytle Creek; those are labelled in both the USGS and OSM data:

Is this what you're talking about, or are there others?

Some of the roads are like 1N34, not all of them are service roads, I don't think. One of them takes you to the Pacific Crest Backpack Trail, I believe.
