OpenStreetMap US

There are over 800,000 acres of public land across the United States! To keep OpenStreetMap data up-to-date for trails on our public lands, we will need YOUR help!

Are you…

  • An OpenStreetMap Contributor?
  • A trail user concerned or interested in how your favorite public lands are mapped and navigated?
  • A land manager or volunteer for a trail advocacy group interested in keeping your local trails properly represented on navigation apps?

Whether or not you fall into one or more of these categories, you can help us map & maintain trail data in OpenStreetMap.

We plan to launch a formal Digital Trail Stewardship Program in 2024. We will update this page as information becomes available. If you would like to get notified of these updates, sign up below.
