Little has been mapped at the level prescribed by OCTA’s Mapping Emigrant Trails (MET) Manual. The most comprehensive maps were completed by the National Park Service at a scale of 1:100,000 (one inch on the map representing 100,000 inches on the ground), but this scale cannot be regarded as definitive with regards to the trail’s actual location.
