Trailforks is a user-powered database, users can help grow & maintain the database.
We then reach out to local trail associations and give them control of the content in their region, so they can curate the content.
Locals become the moderator of what trails should be public or hidden, because they know best. Different regions have different policies so Trailforks is a flexable platform.
Users earn points when they contribute content and get credited on their profile.
When content you've submitted is approved your "trust score" rises.
A higher trust score raises your voting power and helps moderators approve your content faster.
Most content is added via the website, currently the app can only add trail reports, trail photos, ridelogs, comments & ratings.
Below is a list of different content users can contribute. We encourage users to fill out as much data as possible, but if you don’t others can submit modifications after. The site has a revisioning and user approval/reject system to help crowd source the data, like a wiki.
