what does green signify on your maps? Off road?

Hi Bob,

I believe a green section on a route you have created means that it is unpaved. Where I am that seems to mean gravel or dirt, mainly on bike paths.

Yes, that’s it!

If you see a faint dotted green line on the map itself then that’s a footpath which isn’t open for cycling.

Thanks to both of you. Just learning and always grateful for advice.
