New trails website launched

A new Trails WA website launched recently has many new features for the trails community and tourists.

Key elements include downloadable maps that can be accessed off-line and filters for trails such as dog-friendly trails, wheelchair-friendly trails and the top trails, as selected by trail experts from around the State.

Among new features are trail running and food and wine maps, regional networks, elevation maps and user reviews and options to earn badges for the completed trail.

The new website is the product of a two-year collaboration between Trails WA, the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions and the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries with input from stakeholders such as the Bibbulmun Track Foundation, the Munda Biddi Foundation and some Local Government Authorities.
