My City Navigator 2007 has a knack for finding the unaccessible back doors to all of the state parks.. usually miles from where I am actually supposed to enter. I have since started preplanning my approaches.


Yeah I learned quick with the state park caches to auto route to the POI in the recreation database that has the state park listing, then once I'm there I'll bring up the cache. Of course some I know have used that "error" to their advantage, but they are also part Mountain Goat and go places I probably wouldn't go! =) If they were already in the park why didn't they just follow their tracks back out? Or do the popular auto units not feature a breadcrumb feature?

It worked against us at Maplewood among many others. It actually worked for us at Lake Bronson. Luckily, at Bronson you didn't need to be a mountain goat.

Let's be honest, it helped at Franz!

Ok, maybe... if you like to hike in thick, jungle-like, "trails". Laughing
