Our village is surrounded by awesome trails. Some are paved and some are single track through the woods. I run daily and am familiar with many of them. To prepare for his turn as leader, my son researched area trails on Google maps. He found a few through the woods very close to the house that none of us had seen before. The trails were hidden because they begin at the end of driveways along the backyards of neighboring houses. His desire to explore and encouraging him to lead has improved his map reading skills as well.
I would love to hear about any maps your kids have drawn.
