Topics been covered before but once again.... Banner Forest; Trail: Stumps

The rear wheel is almost across the fulcrum point before the plank starts to lift giving a sensation of height, followed by a soft landing.

Here's the video...

Currently, I trying to remap Banner since there are a lot of new additions and the believe the GPS chips have improved enough to get a better rendering.
I've been out there six hours the past two days and probably have about 50% of it.

Cool. Come in with a little more speed and make it a small drop. :thumbsup:

So will your map be better than the kitsapgov.com map?

Thanks for taking the time to map it all out.

I think the last one was from July 06. It's a good map but missing 4 or five trails.
Yeah, that's a good map... somewhat dated, but it allowed me to find most of the trails using it and an electronic compass. It might be nice to use some of this data to update that map. I don't think mine will be that "fancy". http://www.kitsapgov.com/parks/Documents/parks/Banner_map_8-06.pdf

I uploaded a Google Earth image (Banner.zip - bottom of this post) that shows what I have so far. Big thanks to K.C. for leading me around today on the new/re-routed stuff. (Download the ZIP file and view the KML file with Google Earth). This map shows; Sidewinder, the modification to Wire Brain, Walley World, the reroute of Cougar Knoll and the extension to Mishmash. The tracks are separated by color in Google Earth and has waypoints. I have about 24 trails so far.

I don't use Google Earth to actually create the map but it's a good program for sharing. http://earth.google.com/

PM me if anyone wants the GPX data file of what I have so far.

Small inset of a screen capture from GE. Notice the elevation changes (66 foot elevation change from the ridges to the ponds). The actual KML file is below the yellow map picture (Banner.zip).

Also a shot of what the tracks look like on my GPS after I've used the tracks to create a map and uploaded the map to my GPS.
This is from the 800 foot level, I normally have it set to either 300ft or 500ft when I'm acually using it because the detail is better, however the picture clearly shows the forest service road. You won't find it on any map put out by Garmin...

Third photo is the map in Garmin's Mapsource program.
