Nothing like it
We were hiking up at Penner Lake today, and decided to loop around to Lindsey Lakes. There's a 4WD trail that's about a 1/4 to 1/2 mile away from Lindsey Lakes that'd take us back to our cars, but there's no path from the lakes to the 4WD road.

There's nothing quite as invigorating as using your compass & map (National Geographic Topo Map, in our case) to navigate over rough terrain (streams & swamps, and some massively dense trees) to find your road.

There is something incredibly annoying, however, about how the National Forest Service (and, by extension, National Geographic) not listing all the backcountry roads. Thankfully, of course, BF & I still had our compass - and sense of direction. The Forest Service really needs to hire some people[1], get them out on all the small forest service roads to map them, and then update their maps. Bad mapping data is very annoying - and dangerous, in many situations.

[1]Hah! With what budget?
