Not sure if this is old news, but I found some great topo maps available online from the Forest Service. Included are maps of Rabbit Peak, Toro Peak, and more. I import them into the excellent iPhone app PDF Maps (by Avenza) which will then show your location on the maps. The maps are here: http://fsgeodata.fs.fed.us/rastergateway/states-regions/grid_zoom.php?stateID=ca&gridSrc=33116

You can also view them seamlessly using caltopo.com by selecting USFS in the drop down menu on the top right. They are almost identical to the USGS maps but they show the forest service roads, camps, etc more clearly.

When I click on your link to "caltopo.com" the following page says "Ooops! An unexpected error has occurred." But I figured it out anyway. Thanks for the info!
