Grant funding helps Great Basin Institute create new site
CARSON CITY, Nev.—A gateway to Nevada’s trails has just been created. A new Web site sure to appeal to Nevada residents and tourists alike offers a central location for the best and most comprehensive information about Nevada’s recreational trails. This site is located at http://nvtrailmaps.com/index.php.
With funding from federal Recreational Trail Program grants, administered by the Nevada Division of State Parks, the Great Basin Institute, in partnership with federal, state and local land management agencies, created the on-line encyclopedia of designated motorized and non-motorized recreational trails.
Site features include:
- Trails searches by location, length and use
- Downloadable topographical maps
- Trail information
- Driving directions
- GPS locations
- Types of recreation allowed
The site provides educational information from partner organizations such as Leave No Trace and the International Mountain Bicycling Association. It also recommends what to bring, and once you’ve arrived, how to use the trails responsibly.
Site manager Doug Braam will add new trails and information on a regular basis. For more information about the Great Basin Institute, please visit http://www.greatbasininstitute.org/or call 775-784-1192.
