The coordinates given for http://www.oregonhikers.org/field_guide ... _trailhead are a bit off; the actual trailhead is at 45.4429, -121.7292

I found something else amiss. http://www.oregonhikers.org/field_guide ... rest_Trail and http://www.oregonhikers.org/field_guide ... alls_Trail and http://www.oregonhikers.org/field_guide ... l_Junction all share the same coordinates. I don't think the first two can be correct, and the last seems at least a little bit off itself. From Google Satellite view the actual junction appears to be at 45.39114, -121.80823.

The coordinates for http://www.oregonhikers.org/field_guide ... zag_Canyon appear only slightly off, but enough to be confusing as the waymark ends up on the ridge between Sand Canyon(s) and Little Zigzag Canyons. Unambiguous coordinates: 45.3377, -121.7273

I'm afraid that a lot of the original entries in the Field Guide have misleading coordinates - also sometimes because of incomplete revision of a template. I do correct them when I find them . . . but, Webfoot, would you like to be a Field Guide editor? Your attention is much appreciated - if you were an editor, you could correct these things yourself! PM me if you're interested.
