Thread: GPS and state trails

  1. #1

    Default

    So as I understand this, their is a need for the GPS coords of state trails that are currently open? to keep them open

    Now i don't know the first thing on how to use a GPS unit (or have one), but their are alot of trails in Yankee Springs, and even more closed ones. Would someone be willing to come out with their GPS and record all the trails. I just don't want to see Yankee Springs forgotten about, maybe even show whomever some of the old trails that are now shut down..........Just throwing this out thier as kinda of a feeler, don't know if anybody is local etc.....

    Dude, I'd LOVE to take you up on your offer, but I really don't know when I'd have time.
    I hate to admit it, but I'm swamped!

    If you know anyone who has a unit, or get any takers on your offer; I have a DVD I'd like you to watch before going out to collect tracks. There are specific ways to set up the unit to make it easier for the Government to use the tracks.

    Let me know, and we can figure out how to get a copy to you.

    Pat are you still looking to Map/GPS parts of the Manistee yet? If so when?

    I would also be interested in the DVD or learning to use mine more.

    I'm planning to GPS the "M Triangle Project" area over Memorial Day weekend. Would LOVE to have company!

    I'm meeting any who wish to join me at Burk's Waterfront Restaurant at 10:00am on Sat and Sun for sure, maybe Mon too if needed.

    See you there?

    I could give you the DVD there, or snail mail it to you before hand.

    I am not sure if the state is doing the GPS trail log but I know the USFS is. I got the DVD on it.

    The state isn't under the same rule, but DOES have over 800 miles of new trails/ROUTE to designate in the next two years. The information on the DVD is still good stuff to help show us where trails are that you'd like to see designated on State lands too.
    State or Federal - both have different reasons why we need to GPS your favorite trails!
