A lot of missing bike trails

Testing the Find Bike Trails API with lat and lon below.

lat: 48.769768
lon: -122.485886
radius: 30 miles

I know for a fact that there are hundreds of bike trails in this area (Galbraith Mountain Bellingham Washington) but the API only returns less than 70 within 30 miles radius.

Trail data is populated via a number of sources (government data, open data sources, UGC, etc.) and unfortunately it is not 100% complete for some areas.

Also note that the level of detail provided varies between trail systems which will affect the number of results. For example, a system like Galbraith might just have a single entry for the whole system, or it might have dozens of individual trails nested beneath the parent.
