Notes

WARNING: Public safety in this area has decreased drastically in 2020, and there has been a significant uptick in drinking and motorized use, use of the unofficial shooting range to the east of the mapped area, and a general decrease in the safety of the area. At present (August 2020), we strongly suggest not using this area.


A much larger, forested version of this map (Postill Prominatory) is also part way through production (August 2020), but has been stalled out due to COVID-19. Hopefully this new expanded map can be completed in 2021.
