    UPDATE 8/10/2011:

    Hey Folks,
    I've spent some time cleaning up the map. I've removed the business and mapped routes along with other non-placemarks. I also cleaned up about 300 duplicates. The map is now 2 pages in length of trailheads in California, Nevada and Colorado. Please feel free to continue to add new placemarks in any state.
    Some guidelines when adding a new trailhead:
    - Before adding a new placemark, scroll to the bottom of the placemarks list and check the other pages for duplicates. Unfortunately google maps does not let me sort placemarks by name.
    - Just add a placemark for the trailhead. No mapped riding routes or areas. This slows down the maps ability to render quickly. Link to another google map with the route if you want to provide that information.
    - If an area has multiple trailheads, please name each accordingly (ie: Mission Trails Main, Mission Trails West, Mission Trails Visitor Center)
    - Please include more information than just "Sweet Single Track". Links to park website, description of trailhead and tips for locating it are great info to add.
    - Please do not add businesses to this map. It's a trailhead map, not a local bike shop map.
    - Please do not edit the KML in Google Earth and re-upload it to make changes. I suspect this is how the 300 duplicate trailheads appeared.

    Finally, if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to email me.

    Thanks!
    Dave

    Awesome. I was just wondering the other day if there was something like this out there, similar to Beer Mapping. Way to make your first post a great one davemw.

    I added a few in my area.

    This is a cool idea, and thanks for the work you've done so far.

    I would add that it would be particularly cool to add google maps of the actual routes for each trail, rather than just the icon and link to MTB Bill. That's obviously more work, but something I'd be interested in helping with if you're interested.

    I have google map routes for many San Diego rides via my Garmin 205 in conjunction with Motionbased. If you're interested in that type of integration, shoot me a PM or something.

    The main reason for my particular interest in seeing maps for the actual rides is that with my schedule, I have a hard time making group rides. So if I want to check out a new trail solo, it would be great to be able to look at a google map of the ride beforehand to see what route to take.

    Thanks again for your work on this and for taking the initiative to put something together.

    Click the edit button and you can edit whatever you'd like. You have to have a Google login, ie a gmail account to edit.

    Ditto on BrewMaster

    Once you are logged int to google and you click edit on the map, then drag the markers. There are also icons in the upper left corner of the map that will allow you to dra the trails in.

    Being that I've had my bike for all of 10 days, I haven't ridden many of these trails and don't know the area.

    Thanks for the interest in this! It will hopefully turn out to be a great resource for all of us.

    This would be a cool permanent addition to the site. I often see rides posted up but don't know where they are.
