    Due to the longish walk to the start/finish area I've made the courses just a bit shorter than normal.  Courses are on paper and all but 4 controls are streamered.  The woods is quite nice in most areas.  Approximate data:  White 2.00K, 100 climb; Yellow 2.94K x 100 climb; Orange 3.58 K, 140 climb; Brown 3.53K, 190 climb; Green 4.01K, 190 climb; Red 5.04K, 245 climb.

    I helped Ed with some map work.

    Much of it isn't completely exact but it's more usable than the 2013 version.  The approximate location of the downfall from logging is marked with double slash undergrowth.  I downgraded trails I know are not maintained, and removed ones that I have never seen in my course setting.  

    And, most importantly, I added in new well maintained trails so you don't get caught off guard.  However I didn't have time to match up all of the point features (next year) so I marked them as 'indistinct' primarily using gps and my field knowledge.  The courses flow in a way where you may cross the singletrack trails but are unlikely to use for fine navigation.   

    If you compare the MTBO map:

    To 2013:

    you will see the extra trails near the north resourvoir.
