A new website has been launched by the Great Basin Institute, nvtrailmaps.com. It’s an encyclopedic listing of hiking, biking, and horseback trails all over Nevada, complete with info on length, elevation, and the permits you’ll need to go on the trail. And, of course, topographic maps of each trail. About the only thing missing is written description of the trail and the landmarks you’ll see along the way, but maybe I’m just spoiled by published trail guides. This is a great free resource to look at if you’re going into the backcountry on foot.
