ok.. I see.
Easy question:
Have you tried just turning on the SAT view in Google Maps?
For the same location as in your example when I turn on the SAT view I can see all those overgrown jeep trails and more...
..especially when zoomed in a bit...
(I'm guessing they're not marked anyway?)
The TERRAIN view provides a decent topo too.

i.e.


Even when I'm using GN on the street bike.. I ALWAYS have the SAT view on..
.. it's like having a real time helicopter view of where I'm riding..
