I use the 1:24000 when on off-trail hikes esp semi-technical ones with at least class 3 scrambles 
and I really need the fine detail.

For something that is on trail and/or mainly non-technical off-trail hiking like the CDT,
that scale is not needed. 

As someone else said, too many maps needed.

OTOH, if you mix up your CDT journey with some cool off-trail jaunts, let us know! I bet the maps would be useful.
