Mountain Biking Heatmap
zoom to a region
The Trailforks heatmap shows users ridelog data around the world.
Unlike the Strava heatmap, Trailforks makes great effort to filter out sensitive or illegal areas. Our heatmap also only shows mountain biking data, not a mixture of road and mtn. The map has the advantage of interactive trails being visible under the heatmap.
Only public ridelogs are shown, additionally if a ridelog at any point matches a "hidden" trail in the Trailforks database, it will not be included in the heatmap. The idea is to add unsanctioned/secret/illegal trails to Trailforks, but set them as "hidden", to help blackout those areas on the heatmap. Additionally entire areas can be blocked out via a polygon of a "hidden region".

We also process ridelog data to create our own "popularity heatmap" available throughout the site.
