GPS Notes
Most often when viewing our maps, trails marked in Green or Blue have been human-verified by our volunteers. A route in purple indicates an overgrown trail or a bushwhack. Otherwise, the tracks may have been satellite traced or imported from third party sources. While we strongly believe our GPS are accurate, please be aware that no logging system is perfect and to be aware of potential errors.

    Note that this trail has seen a lot of work by a local volunteer in the past year or so. With the exception of one section, which is wiped out every spring by a sand slide, it's in good shape and not difficult to follow. Well worth doing.
