One day ahead of National Trails Day, Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) launched and interactive map of trails in Colorado. ColoradoTrail Explorer went live last Friday (June 2nd) showing 17,000 trails and 1,400 trailheads across the state. Users can interactively explore trails and attributes such as pavement type, class, primary use, and total length. The idea was born out of Governor John Hickenlooper’s Colorado the Beautiful Initiative in Summer of 2015. Currently the website is best used on desktop, although a mobile app is on the way. Users can search the map using keywords or toggle between non-mechanized, multi-use, motorized, and bike route layers. Developers are working to add more data, especially for federal lands. If you see missing trails or incomplete information in your area, contact your local trail manager.
