Do you have a favorite off-road or on-road bike trail that you want to share online? Texas Trails Network (TTN) gave a live demonstration on how to submit trail info online to add to their 620+ trails database at the 2008 Texas Recreation and Parks Society (TRAPS) Conference in San Angelo this past March 27.
The online database currently carries 150+ off-road and 130+ on-road cycling opportunities in parks, greenbelts and private properties across Texas. TTN Administrator John Rath walked an audience-member through the process, taking less than 10 minutes.
The trail entries feature driving directions, maps, photos and other graphics. All registrations are previewed by TTN staff prior to publication. Once geo-oriented and published, full descriptions, trailhead maps and driving directions are available to TTN website visitors.
TTN depends heavily upon input from trail providers, such as Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, City and County Parks departments and trail enthusiasts for current information. The TTN link is at www.texastrails.org.
