*These routes are located commercially timberlands–land already open to the public, and the landowners welcome our research here. Due to confidentially agreements with those landowners, however, we do not publish the exact locations of those routes and survey stations. You’ll see that those route documents lack the GPS coordinates for the survey stations, and the final legs of the driving directions are incomplete. If you are interested in potentially surveying one of these routes then simply contact contact Jason Hill to obtain the complete route document.
