  • Please see the attached images for the actual footpath that should run diagonally through the field but does not exist? This footpath is poorly load out from start to finish. As a trail runner I plan my routes using Komoot and Topo GPS so I can follow my GPS watch and leave my phone at home however these anomalies cause no end of issues when you can't follow them clearly and have to deviate from your route.
