Processing OSM data for MapBuilder Topo

I understand that you refresh the MapBuilder Topo map from OSM about every 4 months. I was wondering if you add additional trail data from other sources? Also, if we add trails into OSM are there any particular attributes we should be sure to include so that the trails display properly in MapBuilder Topo?

    We update the OSM trails database portion of MapBuilder Topo once per quarter. We use trail data from other sources as well, we integrate about 9 different data sources on that layer. You can find out more at

    As long as it is defined and named as a trail or mountaineering route it will be pulled in during our update.
