Not everything can be classified with a tag system, so just like description=* this one mtb:description=* gives mountain bikers the possibility to add additional descriptions to ways suitable for mountain biking. It should only be used for information that does not concern other users of the way, in order not to clutter the description=*.

Language of the value should be the local language (like in the key name=*). For localization we can add a language suffix if needed (e.g. mtb:description:fr=*, mtb:description:it=*, mtb:description:es=*)

Not to be mistaken with note=*, which is an internal key for mappers and not part of this proposal.

Applies to


Value is plain text, e.g. "Mind the greasy rain grooves!", "Way becomes very difficult to cycle on when it's raining.", "many hikers in the evening", ...
