Trail Mapping Websites

If you're looking for a great trail, you will find an incredible selection of trail-mapping websites available. Not only do these sites allow you to map your own bike ride, trail run, or hike, they also allow you to access trail information provided by other users.

Following is a briefly annotated list of trail mapping websites:
  • Ride with GPS - a site to help cyclists plan bike rides and find routes in their area
  • Ride Dog- designed to help bicyclists find, map, & share cycling routes worldwide
  • gpsies - allows outdoor recreationalists to create "tracks" and view those of others
  • alltrails - Share your own trail information & explore over 40,000 trails & trail reviews
  • fitgroups - Plan group rides & hikes in your neck of the woods.
  • biketrippin - Use BikeTrippin to journal, track progress, & upload photos.
  • trailpedia - a collection of trail descriptions that have been submitted by registered contributors.
  • routebuddy - a UK-based developer of GPS-enabled mapping software
  • sports-tracker - Turns your mobile device into a social sports computer.
  • sportypal - Log & map your run, bike ride, walk, or inline skate experience.
  • Everytrail - Create and view trail trips and trail guides.
Most of the above websites/apps can be used to monitor your own activity, share your trail experience, and view the trail activities of other users. Basically, they are interactive versions of such trail location sites as traillink, trailsnet, and Trails.com.

Trailsnet is proud to be mentioned on the OutSpoke'N blog. Thanks also for including us on your blog list. I am happy to return the favor.
For those of you who haven't had the pleasure, take a look at the OSNbiking blog. It's got great photos, video, and information. I especially enjoyed the Crimanimalz vids.

You have excelled yourself this time my friend. Where do you get this information from? I have had a quick scan of the 'sites (will take a closer look later over a cold beer ).A couple I am already connected to.A couple don't interest me - I don't have a smart-phone - and the rest I am sure I will sign-up to. Arigatoo.
