See photo below. So even if there are no track details, you can identify raccoon tracks just by the pattern. In my photo, you can see a snow ridge would eventually be created if this coon traveled the same path over and over. I don't see any reason why this wouldn't happen in dirt also.

If you think this description fits your observations, we'll discuss why the top of the ridge is textured. I have theories for that, too.
