Trail Flow (Ridden Direction)
Trailforks scans users ridelogs to determine the most popular direction each trail is ridden. A good flowing trail network will have most trails flowing in a single direction according to their intension.
The colour categories are based on what percentage of riders are riding a trail in its intended direction.

Trail Popularity ?
Trailforks scans ridelogs to determine which trails are ridden the most in the last 9 months. Trails are compared with nearby trails in the same city region with a possible 25 colour shades. Think of this as a heatmap, more rides = more kinetic energy = warmer colors.

* these % are only for portions of the route that are "snapped" to trails and roads
There are 3 ways to create a route, click points to auto-route between them, freehand draw with snapping, or selecting individual trail segments. You can mix and match these methods to create the perfect route.
Auto-routing between clicked points is the default, click a starting point on the map.
You can toggle Map Mode if you wish to interact with the map like normal.
You can hold down ALT to draw a straight line between points, ignoring the auto-routing. A straight line is also drawn if no routing can be found to your clicked point.
You can hold down SHIFT and auto-route to a point in Map Mode.
Pressing ESC will exit Draw Mode or Selecting Mode.
To start freehand drawing click and drag the last blue routing point in any mode. If drawing near trails your line will snap to the nearest trail after drawing.
Click Selecting Mode to click individual trail segments in sequence, each segment will try and align correctly, but there is an optional flip button to flip the last segment. While in this mode, selectable segments have a pink glow and will highlight with mouse over.
To remove points press or hold down DELETE. Clicking a blue routing point will remove it and the route will be re-calculated. There is also an undo option to revert some changes.
Optionally hold CTRL while freehand drawing near parallel trails to stick to that current trail.
Optionally hold Z while drawing to disable snapping to trails.
Click the edit points button to manually edit or add points after drawing.
When editing points, to delete a point, click it and press DELETE.
Demo Video Routing Issues
Trailforks auto-routing relies on trails connecting and valid direction data. You can help improve routing by editing trails and snapping their points to roads and nearby trails along with correctly specifying the preferred direction for that trail. If auto-routing isn't able to connect trails, you can always freehand draw the missing connection to complete your route.
