I've noticed a couple of errors on locations of some symbols on the map (like a misplace parking/trailhead area). How do you correct these types of errors? — Dec 30, 2016

Hey George, 

Thanks for reaching out with a great question! Editing symbols is a capability that is reserved for admin, but if you send an email to that includes a link to the incorrectly located symbol and a note about where the symbol should be located, we can correct the error ASAP! Let me know if that helps, and we can go from there! 

Best regards,

What if I misplaced a symbol on a featured hike I'm creating? Is that still only editable by admin? The hike hasn't been submitted yet. — Feb 5, 2017

Hey Christy, 

That's a great question. The symbol will still need to go through the admin approval process, but if you send an email regarding the symbol to, we should be able to catch the mistaken symbol. If you wouldn't mind including some information on where the symbol is located, what type of symbol it is, and if we can correct the problem by moving the symbol elsewhere, that will help our team to fix the problem ASAP. 

Thanks for your sharp eye,
