Add Waypoint

  • H10210 - CAUTION: Just prior this waypoint the ADT Turn By Turns and GPS may not agree.

"The turn-by-turns and gps track disagreed, just before the China-Manville Road turn-off. As a consequence, I found myself off of the gps for a good chunk of the walk, but given that it’s all paved and the roads aren’t too busy, it felt like six of one, half-dozen of the other." - Dave Whitson '19
