According to a recently release statement about the new link, folks will be able to get a lot of information and detail on each trail.

Whether you're looking for a new spot to explore with your dog, searching for a trail that gets you up close and personal with some local wildlife, or want to find a spot where you can sit in stare at the beautiful scenery, this site will hook you up with the hike that's right for you.
