Note: Following a virtual hiker trail is not the same as following a groomed hiking trail. The virtual hiker trail defines a rugged overland trek that is assisted by a global positioning device. There may be 30 or more meters of error in the GPS track, which could position the human hiker in uncomfortable or unsafe terrain. Awareness of this margin of error and common sense are required to hike a virtual hiker trail. Do not enter terrain that you are uncomfortable with, and look for the walkable path within the vicinity of the virtual hiker path on your GPS device. It is there, and we were able to hike it without incident.

Caution: It is the user's responsibility to use this data prudently. The data is intended only to be used as a travel aid and must not be used for any purpose requiring precise measurement of distance, direction, location or topography. Safe use is the responsibility of the user. The GPS system is operated by the government of the United States, which is solely responsible for its accuracy and maintenance. The system is subject to changes that could effect the accuracy and performance of GPS equipment. The digital elevation model data upon which the virtual hiker trails are based is produced by the United States Geological Survey, which is solely responsible for its accuracy and maintenance. In combination, the data provided and any user's GPS device constitute an navigation aid (NAVAID) that can be misused or misinterpreted, and therefore become unsafe.
