The My Trails list is very useful if you want to track the trails you've ridden, but what if you also want to track the trails you want to ride? That's where the Trail Wishlist comes in.
Trail Wishlist Button
When you're on any trail listing page on the Singletracks.com, if you want to add that trail to your Trail Wishlist, all you have to do is click the "Add to 'Trail Wishlist'" button below the trail description:
Once you've clicked the button, you'll know that the trail has been added to your Trail Wishlist if it looks like this:
If you added a trail to your wishlist in error, just click that button again and it will be removed.
Finding Trails to Add
Of course, clicking the button is the easy part--actually finding the trails that you want to ride can take some doing! If you know the name of a trail that you want to check out, you can easily run a search for it using the big search bar on the home page:
As you start typing the name of the trail, the search bar will try to autocomplete the trail name based on our database listings:
If you don't see the exact trail name, you can always hit the "search" button to view full search results.
Now, if you know that you want to ride trails in a specific area, you can run a search in the same search bar for a place you want to visit Then, from the town/city page, you can navigate to the trails that want to ride:
