Planning for a hike, run, or mountain bike ride can be very difficult in a mountain town. The inclement weather and a vast trail system of Steamboat Springs often creates inconsistent and unreliable trail reports and distances.

With the City of Steamboat Springs new Interactive Trail Maps, however, unexpected closures, muddy trail rides, and longer than anticipated hikes are simply frustrations of the past.

The mobile-friendly trail maps show the status of 51 miles of trail within the Steamboat Springs community, including all trails on Emerald Mountain and the Steamboat Ski Resort. By clicking on a trail, users can view the trail's status, length, width, average grade, surface type, and difficulty rating. A GPS tracking system even allows mobile users to locate their own location in relation to the trail.
