i have a question about this. a couple months ago i noticed that the length and ascent info varied by a pretty large margin for a weekly standard training hike that i do. it was definitely a big enough difference that it surprised me. i don't have the tracks handy, but i want to say that the hike varied between 8.4 and 9.7 miles or something like that.
anyway, last weekend i did a hike and the stats varied significantly between my phone, google maps, and the gaia website:
phone - 21.67 miles, ascent 8778 (8684) ft.
google maps - 21.0 miles, elev gain/loss 10134,-10141
gaia website - 24.9 miles, total ascent 16574 feet.
i expect that there would be some slight differences, but this is kind of surprising, particularly the difference between the gaia on my phone and the gaia website.
