yes you or anyone can. if thats what you are asking.I have opened the potlach2 editor(the easiest to use) in that area and there is bing imagery (air photo) but I could not zoom in very far. if you can upload some gpx traces of the area you should be able to make a start. have a good read of the documentation there is a link on map page and have a go, ask another question if you get stuck, note you can search this Q and A as well.

OpenStreetMap is not a commercial map provider that improves data quality on request. OpenStreetMap is a free editable map of the whole world made by volunteers. So if you need better data for a given region you probably have to map it yourself.

When you are looking for an entry in that self mapping topic, have a look at the OSM wiki. There you can find basic hints for using a GPS device or use Bing aerial images for tracing.
