Trails made easy

In case you need a reminder as to what all this environmental-protection fuss is all about, go take a hike. A new website makes it a lot easier to do that. The comprehensive covers trails throughout Nevada. Just click on the county where you want to go exploring, then select the activity you want to do—hiking/running, cross country skiing, pack and saddle, mountain biking, etc. The site will find a trail to suit your interests—even the appropriate places for ATVs, motorcycles and snowmobiles. The site also provides a long list of vitals, such as trail length, elevation, whether you should put a leash on your dog, any possible fees for the trail and directions on how to get there. Every trail is also accompanied by a topo map, which you can print from home and stick in your backpack.
