If I remember correctly, the "road" indicated by the lower left arrows is what we were talking about. It is quite obvious from the main dirt road. The wagon train routes were not always "single" ruts. Like here in the Indian Wells Valley we have the Bullion road. This is where the early settlers came south from Carson Valley and was the main freight route used by Remi Nadeau. In places it is a narrow single path and in other places it is over 100 yards wide. Loose sand and washouts dictated their routes. So,all those routes indicated by your arrows could have been pioneer trails which converged further south.
