    Learn Ryan Jordan’s process for discovering hidden backcountry routes by integrating current base maps, satellite imagery layers, and historical USGS maps.

    This is a good tip. I’ve seen many trails decommissioned in my own lifetime, and I continue to use them. This led me to understand that historical USGS maps can be a good resource for abandoned routes and I’ve been doing it routinely for many years. As you probably know, you can download them from the USGS site directly with no fee.

    Nice job Ryan. Love the tip. Also love the length of this video. I was drinking my coffee and had a few minutes so dove in. Fewer chances for the longer stuff. Thank you!
