03/26/2012 - Updated Halfmile’s Trail Notes
03/23/2012 - California Section E tracks, waypoints and map page E12 was updated due to reroute of the trail around a wind farm near miles 554 - 556.
Waypoint descriptions have been updated on the following map pages:
California A1, D1, D12, E3, E5, E7, E11, I3, L1, N6, N11
OR/WA D6, D8, F10, G3, H11, J7, J8, K11
These are very minor changes to the waypoint descriptions. Most are distance changes of 1/10 mile as the result of more accurate mileage calculations or changes to fix typos. The waypoints did not move, only the mileage noted in the waypoint description. The only waypoints to actually move are in CA Section E between miles 554 - 556 where the trail was moved 1/10 - 2/10 mile to the west.
