Offering online maps of hiking trails and destinations will enhance our membership's knowledge and enjoyment of the great hiking opportunities in Colorado. During the active hiking season, March through October, the CMC offers more than 2,000 trips to our members, each led by an experienced leader.

MapBuzz, Inc. (MapBuzz), the social mapping site, announced today that it is providing online trail maps for the 7,000 member Colorado Mountain Club (CMC). CMC members now have access to 590 maps in the Colorado region for planning social excursions, trail maintenance, and geo-tagging points of interest.

"CMC hikers will be able to view trails online and share their hiking experiences with each other using interactive maps jointly developed by MapBuzz and CMC," said Charlie Savage, founder and president of MapBuzz. "Partnering with the CMC is a natural expansion of http://www.mapbuzz.com since our Web site already offers trail maps from several hiking guides. Hosting the 7,000 active members of the CMC enhances our vision of linking people and groups through maps and we welcome them to our online community."

Kristi Judd, executive director of the CMC, said, "Offering online maps of hiking trails and destinations will enhance our membership's knowledge and enjoyment of the great hiking opportunities in Colorado. During the active hiking season, March through October, the CMC offers more than 2,000 trips to our members, each led by an experienced leader." By searching online for hikes and reviewing trail profile information, members can easily match their desired outing with the appropriate trail based on its location and difficulty, as well as share current hiking conditions and surrounding points of interest.

The CMC, headquartered in Golden, Colorado, is one of the oldest hiking organizations in the country and has a number of active chapters throughout Colorado.

MapBuzz offers a free online service that makes it easy for users to share information about their favorite places with friends, family and like minded communities. MapBuzz anticipates significant growth not only of http://www.mapbuzz.com, but of collaborative online social mapping as MapBuzz creates easier, more rewarding ways for users to create, share and search geographical locales. Currently http://www.mapbuzz.com offers a number of online communities throughout Colorado and in Washington, D.C.
