Desert Mountain Announces Interactive Trail Guide
January 3, 2019
More than 12,000 hikes are taken a year on the beautiful 15-mile trails system consisting of seven trail segments at Desert Mountain Club. The Desperados, members of the Desert Mountain community who raised the money to build the trails, have announced the installation of an innovative Interactive Trail Guide that is taking the hiking experience at Desert Mountain to the next level.
The Interactive Trail Guide is a ruggedized and weatherproof 55-in. touch-screen monitor that is mounted on the trailhead restroom’s shady north side. Hikers are able to select a hike by distance, view a customized map and send it to their mobile device. Or, they can select a hike that leads them to Desert Mountain’s highest elevation, view the customized map and send this to their mobile device. Twenty of the most common routes and accompanying GPS data are pre-loaded into the system to assist in selecting each person’s ideal hike.
