I found it difficult to tell what was a road and what was a trail. The area I wanted info on has several foot trails but I found no directions or discription of where they started or where they went. That is why I canceled the trial subscription. The only reason I didnot rate it as worst was the topo map at least allowed me to figure out where a trail might be.
