Creating/improving MTB paths at Medvednica mountain

Posted by dankot on 24 October 2014 in English (English)

I am trying to improve markings for MTB paths and routes at Medvednica mountain ih the area where I ride a lot and know paths well.

I use tags recomanded for MTB as described here: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Mountain_biking

Openstreetmap.org currently only partially renders these tags, but you can download maps rendered according to MTB tags here: http://openmtbmap.org/ (there is no online MTB map).

Also, I will add "MTB related" tags directly to existing paths as these will not interfere with other tags, specially those intended for hikers. My "MTB route 2" is slight variation of "official" MTB route No 2. of Nature Park Medvednica with my corrections to the route so that it less interferes with hiking routes.

Any suggestion is welcomed!

Regards, Danko

The "slide" (http://labs.strava.com/slide/) feature from Strava would help align the path correctly. follow this link and click on the edit with iD in the upper left corner. http://labs.strava.com/routing-errors/#250/18/15.96946/45.88067

You have a mtb relation, I believe that is all you need. https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/4127780

Give it some time for the maps to update.

I use Waymarked Trails to view all kinds of outdoors routing. There is a specific version for MTB:
