Vermont unveils trail website in time for summer hiking

People interested in getting outdoors in Vermont this summer are now able to check a website for detailed information about hundreds of trails across the state that are open for public use.

Officials from the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation and the Upper Valley Trails Alliance unveiled the “Trail Finder” website to help people learn more about trails they’d like to hike, bike, cross country ski or use for a number of other outdoor activities.

Trail Finder is a searchable trails information website that combines interactive trail map capabilities, high quality graphics, and descriptive trail details.

Detailed trail description pages allow users to view the trails, get essential information, submit trip comments and photos, find nearby geocaches, and a whole lot more. Search tools help users quickly find the right trail for a Sunday afternoon stroll or short-list a handful of trails to be explored during a week-long vacation.

To create the new website, Forests and Parks worked with the Trails Alliance and the Center for Community GIS.
