Keyword Search Tips

Sometimes you have a specific place in mind that you want to find quickly. Maybe you remember the whole trail name, just a part of the trail name, or something unique you know is there. You can use the Keywords search bar to help find that trail! Here are some tips:


If you know the full trail name, use quotes to search for the complete phrase, for example: "Natchaug Trail" which brings you straight there! If you don't use quotes, our site searches for each word independently; in this example, you'll find almost every posting because the term Trail is quite popular on our site! Try searching a natural feature, like "Connecticut River" and you'll find a nice group of trails in that area. 


Have a particular interest? Try searching for it and see if the word or phrase is included in any trails in the region. Take the word historic, for example. You'll find trails that have used the word historic in the map or trail description. Click on a map pin or a click list view to learn more, and see what catches your eye!


If you've used any of the search parameters in addition to the keyword search, our site will find you trails that fit all of the criteria. Don't be surprised if you've been a bit too specific and the search returns no results. You can always use the Reset Search option (under the orange Search button) to start afresh.
