To disrobe these elegant trails that seem to lie sleeping just below the surface of the Earth, is to reel in the thread of time. Day after day, the finger prints of the builders before us are revealed. Episode Three, the third episode in the four part Itinerology series looks at times gone by as trails of old are given a new lease of life.

 Yep, now I'll be thinking of trail building as I drift off to sleep. Time to start searching for "lost" trails on old maps.

 Great videos. I love the history in those trails. They were built by people doing what they had to do to just survive. Grass - cow - cheese - pig - Tartiflette : )

 Very good, excellent, in fact. Trails are obviously at the heart of what we do. Very cool to resurrect the history of these old tracks.
