Helpful Information about Walking Trails

Ellen DeGeneres once joked, "My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she was sixty. She's ninety-three today and we don't know where the hell she is." We maintain you don't always have to know where you are, as long as you're enjoying a good walk. But just in case, we provide walking trail maps anyway.

The most intimate way to get acquainted with a TrailLink.com trail is to take a stroll. Whether walking for exercise, recreation, or commuting, walking trails make for peaceful alternatives to sidewalks along busy streets. The walking paths listed here are also a great way to ease into a more active lifestyle. Incorporate a trail walk into your daily routine and discover for yourself the easy pleasures a trail can afford.

All routes on TrailLink.com are walking trails. Here you'll find everything from short, medium, and long routes and from easy, moderate, and sometimes more challenging trails that include hills. Also included are some fitness trails purpose-built to engage communities in staying healthy. Walking paths listed on TrailLink.com pass through a variety of landscapes, including nature trails through city and county parks; urban passages that provide safe access across town; scenic trails with historical significance; and remotely located walking trails through forests and open rural stretches, or among lakes and mountainous regions.

When choosing the right walking path for you, consider the trail's surface, length, and distance between amenities, such as water fountains, bathrooms, shelter, or food. On those longer trail walks, going with a friend is a nice way to share the experience.

All trails listed on TrailLink.com are multi-use, so whichever your mode of travel, keep in mind the common right-of-way rules of thumb: pedestrians always yield to horses, unless otherwise posted.

Explore walking trails, as well as walking trail maps on TrailLink.com, and use our comprehensive trail guides with descriptions, photos, and reviews to plan your next walking trail journey. Use our advance search feature to find walking paths that are perfect for you. About.com (http://walking.about.com/od/trails/Walking_Trails_and_Destinations.htm) also has information on walking trails across the country.

Though we try to provide the most up-to-date walking path information, we don't always get it right. If you find any errors on TrailLink.com, please let us know by clicking on the "edit this trail" link and providing us with the correct information; include as many details as possible. Also, post pictures and reviews of the trail for your fellow trail walkers. And if you run into Ellen's grandmother, tell her we say hello.
