My Home Trails a Hit


On April 1, we announced the release of an all-new map set: My Home Trails.

Our “safest at home” edition—an April Fool’s joke shared on our social media accounts during the height of the COVID-19 crisis— was promoted as covering .05 miles of trail with endless possibilities for both loop and out-and-back adventures.

Hoping to find laughs, we encouraged people to “enjoy the (kitchen and bathroom) waterfall features, soak in the (houseplant) foliage, and explore the vistas (from the top of your stairs or couch). As always, remember to practice Leave No Trace by packing out all trash and respecting the diversity of wildlife—from cats and dogs to flies and spiders. Take nothing but Zoom calls and naps, leave only for essential travel.”

While the response to the post was positive, we’re happy to be promoting real map releases and outdoor recreation once again!
