Know any good backpacking software?

Asked by ru2bz46 (6743points) March 14th, 2010

Does anyone know of a good application in which I can mark campsites, add personal notes, and set waypoints on USGS topo maps, and then have the software calculate route length, vertical feet gain/loss, etc. and print out my personalized maps with the routes highlighted?
