Can hikes from the mobile app be posted?

On Labor Day, I thought I would record a hike so that I could post it as a featured hike on this site. I used the Hiking Project mobile app to record this hike, and now have a GPS track. However, there does not appear to be any option to directly post recorded GPS tracks from the Hiking Project app on the site. The site will only seem to take tracks saved in the form of gpx, kmz, or kml files. Also, there does not appear to be a way to produce one of these file types from the Hiking Project app to export. Is there some way I might be missing to either directly transfer a GPS track from the app or create a file of one of these formats to export?
