The map was made by tracing USGS contours and adding vegetation features from aerial photos.

There are many unmapped roads. Only boulders that I could see from the road when I was paying attention are mapped. No fight is mapped. Green Xs are lone trees. Green Os are Copses. Brown Xs are root stalks or stumps. No fences are mapped, although the only fences I saw were on private property. Private property is mapped as out-of-bounds.

There is no legend on the maps.

The contour interval is 40 feet.

There are two legs on the Yellow course that are more like Orange difficulty.

The Brown course involves punching the start, then driving 3 miles and parking closer to the controls, doing five controls, then driving back to the parking lot and punching the finish.

There will be water on the courses.

All the advanced courses share the same five controls, so leg comparisons will be easy.
