Mine had been doing that error also but didn't just now (it looks like the NewSkin listing at the bottom left if that is what is meant by style).

Not surprising, as they are probably not used to having things happen at a place without an address.

One minor one I see is when you (or at least I) click the Mark Forums Read I got the following note:

Right - the road is a public roadway so that doesn't close, but once anyone left the roadway and entered the actual park properties they were violating the rules, as the Park site says:

Not from the end, but another possibly interesting connection would be to leave the TCT and go into the Hopkins Forest. The trails in that would allow you to hike out into Williamstown, then going...

For future note, there is also a side trail to the South of Bear Mountain (would have been to your right heading south, rather than the left you took for Paradise Lane Trail) that brings you out onto...

Seems it would make more sense to open the new trail AND leave the existing one. Simply mark the parking areas (which they already did, didn't they?) at the Route 73 trailhead, with appropriate...
