Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


I'm new here. I came from Strava because a route I created there misled me, as the trail does not exist. How might this get fixed?

Thank you.

You @jpmontana may want to recall what does it look like. Could be a abandoned:highway=* that you could change the highway=* to (gone now), or some other possibility.

Simply create an account, log in, and delete the offending bit of the trail with the online editor. Please add a clear comment on why you deleted the trail.

https://learnosm.org/en/beginner/ is a reasonably OK resource if you want to read up on things first.

Just make sure that when you delete a way that you only remove the missing section. Otherwise you need to split the way in the editor first.
