Find Trails in All 50 States on Trailsnet
Trailsnet has now fulfilled their main goals for 2014 – 2015. The second of those two goals was to provide an option for finding and adding international trails on Trailsnet. That goal has now been accomplished. But our #1 goal, for the last couple years, has been to feature the best trails from every state on Trailsnet. It took us a little longer than expected, but that goal has now been accomplished also. Every state is now represented on Trailsnet.
How to Find Trails in Every State
Because of the new international trails feature, the navigation on Trailsnet.com is slightly different. The most obvious difference is the new trail navigation menu in the right-hand sidebar. Using this new menu, Trailsnet browsers are able to locate trails by geographical region, trail length, trail surface, trail use and trail type. The other website navigation change is on the main Trailsnet horizontal navigation bar. Now, when you hover over the Trails link on that menu, you will discover three different levels of trail navigation. The first pull-down option will show you seven different geographic locations including Unites States, Africa, Asia, Australia, Canada, Central America/Mexico and Europe. (See screen-shot on the right side of this post.) So now, to find United States Trails, you will hover over the Trails link, then pull down to the United States option, then over to the state of your choice and then one more level over to the trail of your choice within that state. Hopefully you’ll take this opportunity to give it a try and let me know what you think in the comments below.
Next Trailsnet Trail Goals
Now that Trailsnet has accomplished these major goals, it’s time to set a couple more. So here are the Trailsnet goals for 2015-2016:
- Improve Add-a-Trail Function: Feedback from loyal Trailsnet fans shows that our Add-a-Trail function is not as easy as it could or should be to use. So that’s the next major goal for Trailsnet – to improve this function and make it easier for first-time users to add trails. The current system is pretty simple once you’re already registered to add a trail. But first-time users struggle with the current registration process.
- Trails in Every Country: This one may take more than a couple years, but we can dream, can’t we? Just as we now have trails in every state, it will be nice when we can say we have trail in every country worldwide. So if you haven’t already added a trail to Trailsnet, now’s the time. Trailsnet now offers you the opportunity to add a trail anywhere in the world.
