Fellow idiots welcome.

Doh!
Anatomy (n): something everyone has, but which looks better on a girl.

Life would be so much easier if we could just look at the source code.

I may be feeling a bit masochistic. Do you have any links to digital trail maps or waypoints for Scots run?

I have a waterproof topo map of all coopers rock trails. but that probably won't do you much good.

Coopers Rock website has a trail map link though.

Just a word of warning. The part circled in red is the only time you will be on a trail:

I was merrily hoofing it down Scott Run Trail when I noticed the arrow pointing 90 degrees to the left. It was off through the woods for the rest of the day. It took me 4 hours to complete.
