Outdoor Recreation partners launch Nevada Trail Finder map with thousands of miles of trails
Outdoor Recreation partners launch “Nevada Trail Finder,” Nevada's first-ever, comprehensive web-based map featuring thousands of miles of recreational trails statewide
A centralized, “one-stop-shop” for trails statewide, Nevada Trail Finder connects you to current information and web-based interactive maps featuring all-season outdoor recreation opportunities and tools to keep track of all your outdoor adventures.
Nevada outdoor recreation partners are excited to announce the launch of Nevada Trail Finder, a free, web-based mapping resource designed to help Nevadans and visitors discover thousands of miles of trails across Nevada’s abundant public lands and waterways.
This user-friendly, digital mapping platform provides detailed trail description pages allowing outdoor recreationists to explore Nevada’s vibrant trail systems, download maps for offline use, get essential information and planning tools, learn tips for responsible and sustainable recreation, submit trip comments and photos, and much more. Additionally, the public can use Nevada Trail Finder to track their personal trail experiences, noting trails they have explored, their favorites, or ones they want to visit.
Nevada Trail Finder currently features over 150 trail systems spanning every region throughout the state. New trails will continue to be added on an ongoing basis, so be sure to check the website regularly to discover new trails and adventures.
Nevada Trail Finder was developed by multiple state, federal, and nonprofit partners including:
- Nevada Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (Nevada Division of Outdoor Recreation, Nevada Division of State Parks, Nevada Off-Highway Vehicles Program);
- The Great Basin Institute;
- Travel Nevada;
- Bureau of Land Management; and
- U.S. Forest Service.
