Trail Length of Spruce Creek & Graham Swamp
Does anyone here have the lengths of these two trails as collected from GPS data that they would be willing to share?
I got a GPS watch over the holidays and have been using it for pretty much any activity I do that involves distance and heart rate, etc... I have ridden these two trails and mapped them, but the trail length from the GPS is shorter than the stated length of both trails.
Here what I have:
Spruce Creek - 5.60 miles (ridden this week taking the newest "Compromise" trail section)
Graham Swamp - 5.02 miles (ridden this week taking only the 'most difficult' route options)
I've seen different lengths mentioned from each trail depending on the internet source, but both are always listed as being over 6 - 6.5 miles long.
I'm just curious at this point. My watch is a Timex Ironman Global Trainer. I love it, so far. I especially love all the data and numbers I'm collecting from it. I did read one review from DCrainmaker stating the Global Trainer consistantly came up about 2.5% short in total distance measurements, but these readings are more than 2.5%. My road measurements and running measurements are also almost dead on as far as mileage/distance is concerned. Possibly the tree canopy of the trails skews the info?
Anyway. Thanks for reading and thanks in advance to anyone willing to share their data-
