Burlington, Vermont - April 22, 2008
Getting around for people who like to enjoy the outdoors just got a bit easier.
There's a new trail finder. It's a free online resource that lists 77 walking, biking, mountain biking and hiking trails in Chittenden County. People who use the free site can get maps, directions and learn about the trails. There will also be a spot for people to submit comments and photos.
Setting up the system took over two years and dozens of volunteers. The plan is to expand it over time-- eventually making it statewide.
"From residences and actually the Chamber of Commerce and tourism entities had guests saying we want to go out and try biking there, we want to go running, where can we go and they didn't have the maps so it got to be logistically difficult. Now we're putting the maps in the hands of everybody," explains Chapin Spencer of Local Motion.
