If you’ve been in touch with anyone on the WMMBA board, you’ve probably already been begged to create a Trailforks account. There are a lot of good reasons for use the app and all its features, and the value of those features only increase as more users join up!

Trailforks uses GPS data from trails all over the world to improve trail design, to provide numbers for advocacy, and to provide trail condition updates for riders all year long.

For example, you can see Luton Park in minute detail over on the dedicated Trailforks page for the trail system. You can use existing data to map out your own ride, look for group events, and even look at the most trail reports. There’s also data on how many people ride at the trail system by month and by year.

There are Ridelogs for Luton and every trail system that West Michigan Mountain Biking Alliance works with. It’s an incredible tool that allows us to stay up-to-date with what is being ridden, when, and what we need to do to make improvements that will enhance your trail experience. And YOU can help by simply linking your Strava account to a Trailsforks account, too.

By setting up your Strava to push to Trailforks, you’ll be contributing data to the site. Once your account is set up and linked to Strava, you don’t have to do anything else; but you’ll probably want to! We hope to move more trail grooming updates, maintenance days, and general trail updates to Trailforks so information is reliable, consistent and all in one spot!

For help on how to set up for your Trailforks account, and how to link Strava, here’s a step-by-step guide.
