How do I update or change information about a trail?

Please note that any suggested changes to a trail must first be evaluated by our moderators. This process may take may take a while depending on our ability to verify the information and the extent of our backlog.


  1. Log in to your AllTrails account using a desktop or laptop computer (updating trails doesn't currently work on the mobile website)
  2. Navigate to the page of the trail you would like to update
  3. Hover over More (in the same row as Favorite/Directions/Print Map/etc) and click on Suggest Edit
  4. Make whatever edits you think are needed to improve the accuracy of the trail - trail name, trailhead location, length, difficulty level, whether dogs are permitted, etc. You can also suggest a better verified route and draw that route by clicking on Draw Route under "Step 1- Suggest a better route" in the top left hand corner 
  5. Click the blue Save button

On Android/iPhone:

On any trail detail page, tap on the button in the upper right corner and then select Suggest Trail Edit. You'll be prompted to write a suggestion for how we can improve the trail (whether something is inaccurate, missing, inappropriate, etc.). Once complete, tap Send

Via email:

You can email with any suggested edit requests. Be sure to include a link to the specific trail when you write in. 

Please note: our trail segment data (the dashed lines that you see on the AllTrails, OSM, and OCM Map Layers) comes from our partners at OpenStreetMap. OpenStreetMap is a collaborative, wiki-style project to create the most detailed, up-to-date map map of the globe. Because the data is open-sourced, sometimes error do occur. If you see something in the dashed line trail segments on our map layers that are inaccurate or misleading, please contact OpenStreetMap directly by emailing and provide them with as much specific information as possible.
