There are sparse trail maps for the Olympics in Washington state both the
National Parks Service and National Forest Service have data available. The
national park has an older but still mostly accurate trail data available
already converted it to osm and am chomping at the bit to get it uploaded, I
just don't want to step on any toes.
To the potential data sources
also added the NPS data clearing house link
http://www.nps.gov/gis/data_info/ people would need to check to see that the
data is NPS (or US Government) created--and thus public domain--but most of
Further, I would like to propose the creation of US-NPS and US-NFS import
pages on the wiki that can be used to reference individual imports of the
form US-NPS-OLYM (the feds use a pretty standard abbreviation for the
different parks) and appended with _trails _roads _streams etc. of the
general form (_shortname)
Altnernatively creating a US-GOV import page and including data imported
from all of the different agencies.
