Is this website anygood? on 05/02/2006 15:42:22 MDT Print View

I was browsing the internet for ideas on trips and found Trails.com. Looks like it might be informative, but is it really worth $50 a year? Thanks in advance.

I have not subscribed to this, only taking the 14-day trial. The maps that it offers do not define the actual trails posted, but rather a section of the regional quadrangle. I can get better definition from my own copy of National Geographic’s “TOPO” which I can customize even more.

I did some searches on the Triple Crown trails and it offers specific information on individual segments, but as an overall resource IMHO, it is not worth $50. You can get similar info on the internet for free, for just a little more researching trouble.

Mike,
I had the same experience. There are better maps out there - and more up to date ones. $50 down the hole IMHO.
