One of my favorite magazines, Backpacker, has a very cool online gadget that lets you search for hikes and trails near where you live by entering in your address or just your zip code. It's also good for looking up trails in places where you might be planning to go. You can apply filters to the search in order to look for hikes or biking and running trails. The search results provide detailed descriptions and links to each of the trails. I just thought I'd share if you hadn't already seen it - definitely check it out.
