I am wikiloc user, based in Mexico. I've noticed that quite often the distance covered on a given trail according to wikiloc can be considerably higher than for example registered directly with my apple watch, e.g. 14km vs 10km in a recent case. Interestingly this happens sometimes but not everytime This is a concern, for if wikiloc does indeed inflate distances sometimes, it becomes hard to gauge the difficulty of a given trail ahead of time.

Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
