Let me go a step further.  To what purpose is it to the hiker using the maps 
and planning a hike whether the Trail is FT or FNST?  I'd rather see the 
entire thru-trail highlighted on the maps in orange, the side and loop trails 
in yellow or other colors.  The narrative on the back of the maps can alert 
the user to where the Trail begins and ends its various statuses as FNST, FT, 
or unblazed.  I like the continuity that a single highlight color offers for 
the thru-trail.

Thanks for the forum.
