    Hello Cmitcham:

    I think the problem may be that there are several segments to the "track."  The straight lines you see are attempts to connect the end of a segment with the beginning of the next segment to make the whole thing look like a single track.  The solution might involve identifying the relevant points as start and end points of their relevant segments so that there is not the software assumption that there is only one segment in the whole track.  Unfortunately, I have no idea how to do that in Gaia.  I usually use AllTopo Pro or ExpertGPS on a computer to individually edit points in a track and then upload back into Gaia.

    Perhaps the program you used to do the manual edits would be able to do that?
