A place where Pocatello area explorers can interactively share adventures and find more!
Better: A basic smartphone can be turned into a GPS recorder just by downloading one of thousands of free or premium apps. Choosing the right app for your needs depends on what your activity is, and how “remote” you intend to go. Runners, skiers, hikers, bikers and Jeep riders all have their favorites! Spend a few minutes in your Apple App Store or Android Google Play and you’ll find a perfect GPS match for your next adventure.
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.
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 dirt 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.
