Yeah, there were a few quality game trails that threatened to need upgrading, plus a few more who knows what trails. Although re: game type trails, they were HUGE today, versus even a week or so ago, and then would be gone in a month re: visibility, I think.

Before the next event, I would like to do more checking or trail mapping. Maybe I should start now, Maybury has a high risk of reuse!

Why I tagged #61 as abandoned well (if the flag ended up near my tape):

wow I did not see that well at all. This should probably be a blue feature, I'll add that to the map. This looks way more open than what I remember from control location though. There was some square thing hanging maybe three meters lower in the reentrant.

Also, I'll mark one trail leading to the small gravel pit to be indistinct, or maybe a ride. The park people really tried to obscure and eliminate it.

Here's where my GPS goes, to the bottom of the ditch.

I didn't hang that one today, the red arrow (and red QR track) shows where my gps and I think we were when I put up the unfortunately yellow tape (not sure where my pink roll is....).

Then there was nearly a ride/game trail out of it, just a few meters NE.

my track along the south side of 47 is a fairly well defined one foot wide game trail that could be added with some more vetting. also my west of 34 is the same thing.

There were a couple of random metal pipes sawed off sticking up shin level out there too I was happy I saw beforehand. I think one was out near 60 and the other in between my track from 58 to 33.

There are way more random metal pipes than I remember from my last outings. Yes, near 60, and up near 41 iirc.
