Ever wondered if an out of state hiking trail requires a permit? Or if that campground you’re considering allows campfires this time of year? Well now you can find out!
Tripleblaze recently added the ability for anyone to ask questions on our hiking trail and campground review pages, and we’re really impressed with the questions (and answers!) that have been posted so far.
How it works
Just below the description on Tripleblaze trail and campground review pages you’ll see a block with the most popular questions about the trail or campground, and a text box where you can enter your own question. Vote up the questions (and answers) you find the most helpful so others can find the information they need more quickly.
Those who are watching trail or campground pages will receive an email whenever a new question is asked. The person asking the question can also choose to receive an email whenever a reply is received. Asking anonymous questions is allowed (we’ll moderate the question before it’s posted) but anonymous users won’t receive notifications for responses.
Questions and answers also show up in the Tripleblaze news feed on the homepage for additional visibility and quick answers. Members receive 1 point for each question asked or answer posted.
In a related note, Tripleblaze has also rolled out the ability for members to make changes to trail and campground info. For example, we’re missing reservation info for some campgrounds so anyone can click “edit,” fill in the appropriate value, and we’ll get the info posted! As questions are asked and answered, it may become obvious certain trail or camping information is outdated or incorrect and needs to be updated. Look for the edit link in the right column on trail and campground pages to make changes.
Don’t be shy! Let the Tripleblaze community answer your outdoor questions.
