There's more to Trailspotting than just spotting trails, and we're adding new features all the time. Here's a summary of the special features we've let loose during our first few months of publication ..

Northern California Trails
Northern California is not only our home but also and Trailspotting's bread and butter. Check out our ever growing list of hiking trails, snowshoe routes and ski and snowboard trails.


Hawaiian Trails Special Feature

Lassen Volcano Country Special Feature
Four hours north east of San Francisco and an hour from the nearest interstate highway, the phrase "off the beaten track" could've been coined for Lassen Volcanic National Park.
