Terrain Description:
The terrain is composed of many medium-to-large depressions, most ranging from 5 to 65 meters deep, with dense forest and a moderate trail network. The only water features (besides Puget Sound, which bounds the map area to the west) are a few marshes in the northwest part of the area. There are no rock features, and most of the point features are rootstocks. The western part of the area has some paved roads, campgrounds, buildings, and picnic areas, whereas the only manmade features in the terrain east of the powerline are trails. The forest is mostly very slow--difficult to walk through--with poor to very poor visibility. However, about 15-20% of the forest area has only downed trees with moderate to no undergrowth, making for somewhat better visibility and runnability.
