Beef up our route-place database to include all of the routes-places in the '100-best' books
The system has such capacity for displaying our routes and places in an attractive and appealing way, with enough detail to know where the trailhead is and whether or not it covers the route or place that one wants to take. It seems a huge missed opportunity to let routes-places be submitted without even the most basic of descriptions other than the pure length and elevation gain, which doesn't tell us much. Yet I know that Member Services is deluged with route place requests that are so urgent that you hesitate to push back. I wonder if we might be able to assemble a committee (with the help of an intern from BCC or elsewhere?) who could go through our routes and places and beef up the ones that are minimal, clean out those that are redundant, add multiple activity types now that we can, as well as add more routes and places so that we can at least have all the major routes and destinations in our own Mountaineers '100 best' trail guides.
We considered a site-wide volunteer initiative to continue improve our Routes & Places and then add to them, but have no one who has expressed interest in helping yet. Please contact us at email@example.com if you would like to help.
Remember that you can always add a new route/place and send us updates and corrections to those that exist (using the link on each route/place).
