How does this work?

A place where Pocatello area explorers  can interactively share adventures and find more!
Try it out: Most smartphones can be used as offline GPS recorders just by downloading an app. While there are hundreds to choose from, the right app depends on what your activity is. Runners, skiers, hikers, bikers and 4×4 explorers all have their favorites, and some apps work for multiple activities. Spend a few minutes in the App Store/Google Play or check out some apps below as our users test them.
Tested GPS & GPX Apps for Android and/or iPhone.
BEST: Popular GPS makers like Garmin and Magellan offer devices for all levels – from the super simple “Stop & Go” recorders to ultra-advanced receivers that seem like they may require a few classes to master. If you really want to save routes for offline use later, this is the way to go.

Shart Sharing

What type of routes can I share?

By Horses, Boats, Unicycles… the idea is to share the Pocatello (area) you’ve explored. If you can hit “start” and “stop” on your GPS device, you’re half-way there. Our easy Trail Manager form will show you the rest. Here’s some places to start:

Hiking, Biking & Trail Running Trails: Non-motorized trails wind endlessly through Pocatello’s foothills and even through town. From the paved, ADA accessible pathways of the Portneuf Greenway system to the fast, single-track bike routes at City Creek, Pocatello and the surrounding area have it all.

X-Country Skiing & Snowshoeing Trails: Winter in the Pocatello area is a a quiet getaway for the avid snow explorers. Whether you’re on the local golf course tracks or the extensive groomed trails of our East Mink Creek Nordic Center, exploring this winter wonderland is a great way to spend an afternoon. 

ADA Specific Trails: While entering a route, you may mark it as “ADA Accessible” stating that it meets the ADA Accessibility Guidelines of width, surface, slope and other requirements. This will be verified before your route is approved.

ATV & Jeep Trails: The narrow dirt roads found on the outskirts of Pocatello are the stuff motorheads’ dreams are made of. Test your engine, suspension and bravery while exploring our unimproved backcountry roads. Please be respectful of our wildlife, landscape and private property and always pack out what you packed in. 

Highway & Scenic Byway Tours: While Pocatello may have an enormous system of hiking, biking, ATV and off-road Jeep trails, be sure not to overlook the stunning landscapes you can take in on a leisure drive to one of our nearby attractions.

Walking Tours, Pub-Crawls & Downtown: Bring your smartphone (with GPS app) on your next night out downtown and upload your adventure to the Trail Community.
