    We just went from one known corner to the next. Each found corner had to match the description of the trees exactly. We did accept stump holes as partial evidence if we had one scribed tree. We didn't have GPS back then. It hadn't been invented yet. I found one on a granite knob that only had one down tree. The wind had blown some sand and the tree was reduced to something the size of a limb. But the pitch on the blaze preserved it. Before finding it I put myself within 80' with a compass and map

    Awesome! I think this would be my ideal wheeling trip; off roading mixed with history, mystery, and a scavenger hunt. Can't wait to see more updates.

    Hahaha. Are you actually going to find them? What condition will they be in if you do? If you don't find them, where did they go? How many other people have seen them? SO MANY QUESTIONS

    To answer your questions, sort of. Almost all the locations are not published. You cannot find them on the net like you can for others. It is a vandalism thing. And you have to know what you are looking for or you will walk right past them. So yes, more updates. In fact, there is one within sight of the top of the Rubicon trail, and no one knows it is there even with as much traffic as it has. There is a new set I found out near the Hell Hole trail that are newly discovered as of two years ago. We also may have a line on some near the Fordyce Creek trail that are unexcavated. So stay tuned

    80' with compass and map is damn good. I didnt know if gps was around then its been around a while but up til recently was only available to its owners the DOD. The boss wouldnt buy a gps unit heck i have a defunct nikon in the garage i cant do nothing with. I didnt know if you used chains or not.

    The petros are awesome. Havnt seen any here but the native evidence is rich especially in vast swatches of untouched earth.
