Trail Maintenance and Issue Reporting

I maintain a 20 mile public mountain bike trail system and would like to find a way for riders to report the exact location and a photo of down trees, overgrown brush, water drainage issues, etc. It's difficult to find these issues when most riders can't remember or describe the exact location the next day. This has left trail issues go by for weeks and sent me on wild goose chases with a chainsaw to find the mess I need to cleanup.
The other big benefit to a feature like this would be to track whether issues have been already resolved. Tracking our volunteer maintenance hours has been very difficult when it comes time to accurately reported within our volunteer and non-profit mountain bike group.
In the meantime, If you know of another solution outside of the MTB Project app, please let me know.
Happy Trails!

The Trailforks app may have that function, but I haven't tested it out.  

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
