We Acquired Trails.com
When Doug Colbeck and Bryce Stevens sold Trails.com to Demand Media back in ’06, I thought it was the coolest thing ever and they inspired me to follow in their path. This one holds a fondness in my heart and I’m super excited to announce that Trails.com and the entire Trails.com community has a new home at AllTrails.
Here is a copy of our press release:
