Connecticut Trail Finder
From David Dickson on May 27th, 2021
The State of Connecticut has a vast number of open space and outdoor recreational opportunities, however information for trail users can be inconsistent, inaccurate, and difficult to find. The Connecticut Trail Finder, currently in development through UConn Extension, will be a free, interactive mapping website designed to help Connecticut residents and visitors explore trail and outdoor recreation opportunities, trailside services, and events across the state. Connecticut Trail Finder will compile trail manager approved trails with the goals of becoming the primary trails data source for the State of Connecticut and connecting users with trail management organizations and resources. This webinar will provide an overview of the resource to trail users, exploring the current and developing features of the website, and provide information for trail and land managers on how you can add your trail systems to the Connecticut Trail Finder. The Connecticut Trail Finder is funded through generous support from the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection and the Department of Transportation. Presented By Kim Bradley, UConn Extension Trails Program Coordinator, Emily Wilson, UConn CLEAR, and Claire Pufuls, CGIS.
