We'll publish a new trail guide that is coming out in April - yeah, just couple more months (while we are still enjoying the snow). It will be the first trail guide made public in the last 9 years for Canaan Valley and surroundings.

We are looking for your feedback here.

Option #1:
A book, containing 35+ trails.
Detailed route on one side, details of the trail on the other page with standard info. All black and white, as you would have it.
Will probably retail for about $28.00

Option #2:
A magazine, containing 35+ trails.
Details route on one side (high details and in color), and details of the trail information on the other page with standard info. The entire magazine-style trail guide will be in a glossy format, and in color.
Will probably retail for about $12.00

What are your thoughts?

This will be released by Voilà Interactive Concepts.

Hm... I'd personally be more likely to go for the cheaper route. Would both books contain the same material?

It'd also be cool if you could offer a digital version of the book - that way you could print out the routes and take them on the ride with you.

Same material - just "unconvetional" if we go with the magazine for an intense area trail guide. The +, it's about the colors, and the price.
The magazine will provide a digital membership too - with the latest rides, plus interactive photos. Here's an example at Timberline:

there are way too many trails and ride options in davis/canaan/etc with state parks, national forest, old strip mines, rail grades, private entities, etc to make a trail guide publication.

I think it would be much better to just hire me as a guide for the cost of a beer and burrito smile
