On a topographical map, sometimes called a topo map, contour lines are often used to join points of equal elevation above sea level and color gradations may depict elevation ranges between the contour lines.  Topographical maps are often used to determine areas and routes where the terrain is fairly level or where steep slopes exist.  This page includes both static and interactive topographical maps of Massachusetts.

Massachusetts Topographical Features

Massachusetts's highest mountain is Greylock Mount, whose peak is 3,491 feet above sea level.  Massachusetts's lowest elevation is sea level, at the Atlantic Ocean.  Eastern Massachusetts is a fairly flat coastal plain, but moving westward the land rises gradually to wooded rolling hills, broken by the Connecticut River valley.  The Berkshire Hills rise in western Massachusetts.  Major rivers in Massachusetts include the Connecticut, Charles, Merrimack, Housatonic, and Taunton.
