I occasionally design or lead hikes in areas with multiple trail junctions. I attempt to be thorough in the planning by having several different ways for hikers to follow the trail. (Maps and GPS are the two main methods)
I am seeking a better way to verbally describe the planned hike route by describing the trails and turns in a systematic way. I'd rather not devise my own nomenclature, as I have read very good trail descriptions in the past. I am sure there is some well proven way of writing useful description using somewhat standardised language.
Can anyone point me to a good reference for this?
