EveryTrail Resources


Coastwalk is always researching the growing resources on the web which support outdoor activities for those which can be useful in building support for the California Coastal Trail. One of those we have found recently which looks very promising is EveryTrail.Com.

EveryTrail has capitalized on the wave of new cell phones and GPS devices which can capture the routes and scenes of hikers, mountain bikers, walkers, and all others who love the outdoors and want to show all of us where the best places are to enjoy it.

Here's a link to the mapped hikes along the coast of California which spend some time on the CCT.

2009 California Coastal Views Film Festival Opens


Once again, California Coastal Views is hosting a video festival made up of scenes of the California coast which appear on YouTube. For the next month, I'll be looking on Google Earth, and querying entrants from the previous festival, to assemble here the nominees.

Eligible videos must show the California coast, must not have competed in previous CCV festivals, and be loaded on YouTube no later than July 15th, 2009. No real estate sale promotions or chamber of commerce ads. The divisions and categories will be developed to account for the length (shorts, up to five minutes, feature length) and amount of features (music, transitions, advanced editing). I'm currently scanning Google Earth starting at Wright's Beach and heading north to the Oregon border. Then, I'll start again south to Mexico. Nominees are invited to submit links directly to me at Deadline for submission is July 30, 2009. Finalists will be announced on August 31st, and winners on September 1st.

This post will be updated with nominees, in divisions and categories as they are developed.
