There are many ways to find trails in the Trailfinder application. The simplest method is to visually search for trails in the main map display. Once you have located a trail of interest, click on the trail marker (star icon). This will open an Info Window that contains information about that trail. Note that when you roll your mouse cursor over a trail icon, it changes color and the trail name is displayed.
Once the Info Window is revealed you can browse the different information tabs or click the "Zoom to Trail" button to zoom to the trail.
If you know the name of a trail you are looking for, you can search by trail name using the "Trail Name" drop down. Simply click on the arrow on the right side of the drop down control and select a trail from the list.
Alternately, you can define several parameters for your search. These include allowable uses, trail surface types, trail length, and distance from a location.
To select an allowable use, click on any of the use types in the "Allowable Use" list. Hold down the Ctrl button if you would like to define more than one use in your search.
To select a trail surface type, click on any of the use types in the "Surface" list. Hold down the Ctrl button if you would like to define more than one trail surface in your search.
To add length criteria to your search, click on the arrow on the right side of the "Length" drop down and choose a length.
To narrow your search to find trails within a certain distance of a location, enter a distance zip code (or city and state) in the "Distance" control.
Once you have entered all of your search parameters, click the "Search" button to execute your search. Click the "Clear" button at any time to start over.
