    Hi Southern Hiker,

    I wanted to give you the heads up since this seemed up your alley for Southern Hiker. We are gearing up to launch a new website called Sierra Club Trails. It’s (as far as we know) the first-ever comprehensive hiking wiki…A website where anyone can post their favorite hikes and anyone else can edit the descriptions so that the trails are constantly up-to-date. The site is up and running in a beta test now, and we’re planning to launch it this Thursday, July 9th – so I wanted to make sure you were in the loop.

    What makes this site unique is that it’s a wiki – i.e. anyone can update or edit the trails that are posted. So if I post a trail in, say, Yosemite, and you’ve been there recently and saw that part of the trail is really muddy, or the bugs are bad this time of year, or if camping spots are getting really popular and should be reserved in advance, you can update that.

    In addition to hiking and paddling trails, the site also features tips for hikers, a birding blog, photo contests, and Nature Notes, a series of audio features based on interviews with naturalists and Sierra Club Outings leaders. Sierra Club Trails is also an online community where users can create profiles and meet other hikers and nature-lovers, as well as join discussion forums with topics like the best trail mix recipe or whether guns should be allowed in national parks. Community members can form groups around a particular outdoor interest or place.

    Does this sound like something you’d be interested in covering for your blog?
