North Carolina Mountains-to-Sea Trail complete (almost)

Posted by Sparks on 12 September 2020 in English (English)

A few days ago I wrote about my plans to map the Mountains-to-Sea Trail, putting each segment into its own relation (and then putting all relations into the main MtS Trail relation). This has now been completed!

There are a few more things that need to happen to complete this trail.

  • Alternate routes need to be added.
  • Drinking water, toilets, and other points of interest need to be mapped along the trail.
  • Roadways need to be aligned (trails look pretty good, I think).

It will definitely take a while to complete these tasks but perhaps if done by section it will make it a slightly easier to keep track of the tasks.
