Uploading A Track File
You can upload a GPS track files and associate it with any hiking log entry that
you have already entered on the site.
- Navigate to your log entry's view page.
- Locate the "[Upload Track File]" link near the bottom of the page and press it. The link to upload a
track file will only appear on your own log entries. The link will also not appear if you have already
uploaded a track file for the log entry.
- Once you've been redirected to the Upload Track File page use the "File Name" file search component
to point to the .GPX file that you would like to upload.
- Be sure to click the check box giving Hiking Trailhead and its sister sites
permission to use the file.
- Press "Upload".
- If the file was successfully uploaded you should be returned to your log view page once more and
a new segment entitled "Track File:" will appear with a link to the .GPX file. The track file will also
be displayed on the Google Map. Now everyone can follow in your footsteps!
