Trails Inventory Project

Silverton Singletrack Society is building a comprehensive database of existing trails in San Juan County. If you would like to help in this effort, simply bike or hike a trail in San Juan County and email the GPS track to trails@silvertonsingletracksociety.org. You do not need a dedicated GPS unit to do this, all you need is a smartphone with a GPS app. 

Our long term goal is to develop the world's most awesome network of trails right here in Silverton. The first step in that process is going to be to catalog what is already here. We will eventually use this information to create a map of all the singletrack in San Juan County and make it available to the public. There is a possibility that we will be able to credit you for your work. If you would prefer to remain anonymous, please let us know in your email. 

The purpose of this project is simply to map the trails that currently exist, not to improve them or build new ones. That comes later, once we have obtained permission from the land managers or private land owners. 

If you have any good photos from your ride or hike, feel free to send us those as well. You can also help us by simply tagging any photos from San Juan County trails with #SilvertonSingletrack on social media. 

We also encourage you to submit trails to MTB Project. For details on how to do that, go here.

Thank you for your help!
