Sometimes there are short-lived hickups with GPS recording. e.g. Look at this:

https://www.wikiloc.com/hiking-trails/c ... k-60817585

There are two places where it seems I fell in some deep hole and climbed out immediately.

Is there a way to fix these on the site?

Could Wikiloc fix these automatically?

I don’t think you can edit these using Wikiloc.

If you open the .gpx trail when it is superimposed on a map on your computer screen, you should be able to see the hiccups ie specific problematic track points and be able to delete these and then save the corrected track.

Another option is to open the .gpx file with a text editor and simply delete the problematic data sets that correspond to the bad track points.
