Bays Mountain Park unveils new Trail Maps

Bays Mountain Park is always ready for folks to hit the trails and enjoy the natural wonder of our region. Now, visitors to the park will be able to enjoy a brand new trail map with the most accurate and up-to-date information available.

Over the past year, the staff at Bays Mountain Park has worked diligently to design a new park trail map. The process involved re-mapping all 40 miles of trails within the park to provide guests with the most accurate and up-to-date map possible.

Through this process, staff worked to build a map that could be geo-referenced, meaning the new map will work with map readers, such as Avenza Maps, to allow guests to see their location in real time on their phones.

Map readers use your phone’s GPS receiver and do not require cell service to operate once installed on your phone. Bays Mountain Park’s new map can be downloaded through the Avenza Maps app free of charge.

To access a digital copy of the map and for directions on how to install the map using Avenza Maps, please visit Paper copies are available for sale at the Gate House and Nature Center for $2 each.

“The work to create these new maps took some time, but we knew once we were done the end result would be well worth it,” said Park Manager Megan Krager. “We appreciate your patience and hope everyone enjoys exploring the trails with our new maps.”
