Route Editing Options
To edit any recording or route errors along the map just click a white circle on the red route line to bring up detailed options, including the ability to delete points along the route, and split the path so you can edit a route at various mid-points. You can then drag a point with your mouse/trackpad to an intersection or area you wish to move the route. When routing on a trail manually, turn off auto-follow roads to plot a rough path of the trail (zoom in for this). Next, select the loop route to this point option. Any navigable trails or side roads will automatically loop. *Not all side roads or trails will be able to use this feature.
Appearing onscreen to the left is a control panel where you will find options for turning on/off auto follow roads, turning on distance markers, an option to avoid highways, and more.*Routing in some areas will require that you turn off the auto-follow roads feature. Auto-follow roads are dependent on another option as well, the avoid highways checkbox. Auto-follow roads can be turned on or off after already creating points on a map for easier navigation and creation. Under the map, you will find elevation data. Enjoy using the site to log and route your activities!
