Manage Documents



Documents can be anything you need access to on the go, want to distribute through the site, or just need place to store. Some examples include:

  • Trail maps
  • Waivers
  • Land owner agreement forms
  • Pictures from rides

Not all documents have the same permissions of course. You can choose to display a document to the general public or make it available only to members. You can archive past documents to keep the list clean and revisit them at a future point, or delete them to remove them from the list forever.


The Documents section is found on the My Account page.

  • Log into Smarter Trails
  • Click on the My Account link located at the top of the page
  • Click on the Documents icon in the club area you wish to add documents to
