Minor (Hopefully) Request

I love the new filter bar on top of the map with difficulty, mileage, stars, etc.  I think it would also be helpful to have a minimum # of ratings filter as well.  Living in NJ there are many trails with very few ratings.  Some of these are listed as 4+ stars because the submitter really enjoyed them (great for them!) but in actuality the trails are artificially inflated due to so few people having rated them.  Giving users some flexibility to to find the highest rated hikes with a high volume of recommendations would be helpful.  Thanks and keep up the great work.

Hey Lou, 

Thanks for keeping such close tabs on what we've been up to! I think that you make a great point about some of the trails in some areas being a bit artificially inflated. I'll pass your feedback along to our engineers to see if we can add that functionality to the filter bar. Let me know how things have been going with the new filters, and please don't hesitate to reach out if there are other ways that we can improve!
