Before adding or editing data, please review these EDITING GUIDELINES.
Choose from the actions below to review parks, add comments about parks, and propose the addition of new CPAD units (drawing on the map or upload your own GIS files).
You can also propose sites for park trail heads (staging areas hikers/riders would begin their trips) as well as a primary park entry for each park.

Comments and edits submitted in this MapCollaborator will be reflected in the twice-yearly CPAD updates and will not appear on this map until those updates are released.

Add Trail Heads & Entry Points
Choose a park, then click on the site inside the park boundary to place a trail head (where you would go to actually start a significant hike or ride) or a main park entry point. Add a description and choose which the point type, then click "save".
Trail heads should be official or obvious trail access points; urban parks under 10 acres generally do not have trail heads.
Main park entries should be a single primary location where a road or main park trail/path can be accessed coming from outside the park (some park entry points may also be trail heads); some parks may be open from all sides and not have a main entry point.
