Something like 8 percent of males have some level of color blindness and may have difficulties distinguishing between mountain bike trails and equestrian trails on this map. It would be a huge advantage to these individuals if there were some other indication, like dots or dashes, used for the equestrian trails, or if the colors used had much greater contrasts.
I know it's hard to visualize if you're not affected, but it's really hard for me to distinguish the brown trail from the green trail on this map. It's readily apparent on my iPhone, not so easy on a hardcopy. I appreciate the symbolism of marking their trails with the color of horse *beep*, but something like yellow would have worked better.

Me being the FNG, I can only take these things to the powers that be and see where it goes from there. Again, thanks for the input.
