I am interested in hiking the Cowboy Trail rather than cycling it. I noticed that the Timeline feature seems to favor bicycle rides, however. It will not accept a speed of 2.5-3.0 MPH (average walking speed) and give a result. Can this be corrected, or is there a workaround for this feature? Thanks.

Thank you for pointing that out! It's now fixed.

I'm guessing you entered 2.5 for speed and ended up with a blank screen. The web page was not correctly handling numbers with a decimal point - anything other than whole numbers (integers) caused the problem.

I fixed this issue and verified that 2.5 (or other values with decimals) will now work correctly.

Sorry for the trouble, thanks again for bringing it to my attention, and good luck with your hike!

Thank you - working now! With a couple of zero days it seems 10 days is about the time it will take. Very helpful!

Hello! I am also interested in hiking the trail this summer. Did you end up making the trip? If so, how was your experience? I know this is somewhat unrelated to your original post, but I am looking for any intel on how to hike it.
