Trail map
« on: October 29, 2013, 06:35:40 PM »
I received a suggestion today to start a map with pins to all the known trail heads.  Similar to the "pin yourself" section.  What do you guys think of this idea?

I think its a great idea. It would have to be regulated though. Meaning not just any dirt road is a trail.

I agree with Kyle, as long as we are only pinning signed/marked trails (aka official trails), this sounds like a good idea.

You will notice that I pinned myself to the Table Mesa area.

I agree, good idea, maybe also pin meetup spots like Chevron off I-17/Carefree Highway. Gas station across from Ft McDowell Casino in the East Valley, etc...

I was screwing around the other day with this website. (im sure there are other sites out there, this was just the first one I came across)
https://www.zeemaps.com/map?group=720261&location=Arizona&add=1
You could use different colors for different things.. .   Example...  One color for each trail raiting, one color for popular meet up places, another color for actual meet places.  ect

A while back, I was researching some trails in Nevada. I came across a website that uses Google Earth.  I think they uploaded actual GPS Coordinates from their trips.

Nice, I am sure there is a way to integrate that.  Rev should be dropping by the mod day, we will talk about it then.

Rehash an old topic.   
Questions
Should we look into creating a trail map?
When you guys/girls go off-roading, do you GPS track the routes?
If this is something that we would use?

 If this is something that we would use, I wouldnt  mind putting the time into creating one.  I will start looking into what options are out there.  Maybe creating something on Google Earth.

When I put together group cycling rides I use an app on my phone called Footpath. You can just draw out on the map the route. Just be sure to turn off the magnet otherwise it will jump to the nearest road. It works pretty well. It'll give you the total miles and elevation. Might now be the best for this application for this but may work for someone with patience. You can then share the photos to be printed or just viewed online.

We can do it using Google maps as far as pins go. But for trails there a bunch of options. I actually started one last week but it's just way points and not full trails. I'll see if there is an easier way for us to do it.

I know this will be handy for a lot of us.

Google Earth was running slow, so I didn't clean up the way this looks.  This is an example of what we should be able to do on Google Earth.
