Could somebody educate a newbie as to the meaning of the coloured dots (brown, yellow, etc) alongside the trails lists. Thanks, Peter.

Traffic lights.

Red: the trail is closed and should not be ridden

Orange: The trail has issues use good judgement and take car

Green: All ok.

Be mindful its a user generated system, so may not be the official status and you should use sensible judgement in adverse weather/wet trails

Oh and brown is just that light is not on.....

That makes sense, thank you.
How about the colour of the trails on the maps themselves when I open them? Yellow, green, brown? Is that the same system?

On the trail maps the default colour (this can be changed in the overlay box) are IMBA rating for the trail.

Again, user generated so nothing official, but gives an indication.
