That looks like fun! (If you like hills.)

Very similar. A couple of interesting differences and similarities
Were you just checking out the hilltop NW of O13?
Also interesting that you traveled along the ridge to O14. Was that also to explore?
We found something weird on our return to TA4 from O15. I thought it was the trail at the time that just disappeared but apparently, it was something unmapped taking us a bit off course.

O13 was originally on that hilltop but after trekking to it through miserable saplings the whole way we decided to put it at the junction to the SE instead. You’re welcome. ;)

Route along the ridge to O14 was intentional although dropping to the road now looks faster. What did you think about location of O16?

O15 is in correct location for depression feature but mislabeled on tracking page. It was originally further out on the spur but we thought this location might entice a few mandatory CP teams to venture out a little. We ran into that unmarked trail as well but figured people would know to stay on the marked trail through there.

We definitely did a little swimming through saplings from O12 to O13 but almost all of the brushy stuff we found was soft and fairly easy to push through. Plus cool temps and no bugs, we thought it was a really nice section. Our only thought was how few/sparse the CPs were here - not a lot of value in exploring this section if you're not a course-clearing team. Thanks again for your volunteering/course testing/wrenching!

O16 seemed fine. I think we maybe walked a bit further than we measured it on the map but that could have been measurement or pacing error as well.

I bet we went to the old O15 location. It was a clearing and then some interesting large pits just past the clearing. I never saw any trail markings just a wide path. It wasn't going quite the right direction but we followed it a little bit and then it ended so we had to just take a bearing in the direction we needed to go and eventually got to the trail.
