Olympic National Park's trails and roads are mostly there, the
accuracy is somewhere between "spot on" and 20m off. Many of the
trails are difficult to accurately align due to tree cover.

I've been looking into getting more recent trail, road, and structure
GIS data from the park, but I usually get stalled from some reason.
