Trailsy is the front-end component of To The Trails, a project developed by Code for America fellows working with partners in Summit County, Ohio.

To The Trails is a web application where citizens can find information about the trail network of their region. The app incorporates data from multiple agencies and park stewards, including the Cuyahoga Valley National Park and Metro Parks, Serving Summit County. To The Trails helps citizens find trails that fit their needs based on attributes like length, amenities and activities.

The current production version is at

(For quick step-by-step instructions for creating a new deploy of To The Trails/Trailsy, try the new deploy instructions on the project wiki.)

This front-end code is self-contained and can be used with any existing instance of Trailsyserver, which provides a REST-like API to trail data. Almost all of the Trailsy-specific code is in js/trailhead.js. Change API_HOST at the beginning of that file to point to a Trailsyserver instance, and serve up the app directory with the HTTP server of your choice.

This repository is included as a submodule of Trailsyserver in its /public directory, but can be hosted separately, and should be during development unless you're well acquainted with the subtleties of git submodules. See the docs on deploying new versions for information on keeping the submodule code up to date.

The app is lightly customized for use in Summit County, but can be repurposed for other areas with minimal effort. There is a constant named AKRON in trailhead.js that can be changed to whatever default location you desire.
