i was trying to upload a group of *.gpx that are parts of the same trail...a loop, some spurs and a couple of logging roads.  the interface only allows me to upload 1 *.gpx.  combining them would not be good.  and the interface apparently auto selected for trail name.  the interface seems very limited functionality.  how do i delete?  where are the detailed instructions?

Hello Del, 

Thank you for reaching out. I appreciate your letting us know about the .gpx troubles that you've been having. I am interested in hearing a bit more about the route that you were hoping to upload. It sounds like you have numerous unjoined tracks, but I was curious about when you mention that combining them wouldn't be good. Are the segments all part of one hike? Were you hoping to keep each segment as an individual trail, and then combine them into a longer featured hike after uploading the segments? I think that knowing a bit more about your goals will help me to direct you. 

If you've uploaded portions, you should be able to delete them, especially if they're assigned to your profile. If you navigate to your profile, you should see your submissions, and should be able to click on them to edit, unless you have already submitted the routes for admin review. Let me know if you have, and we can get them sent back your way! 

We have some detailed instructions on our FAQ Page, if you would like to learn more. 

Let me know if that helps, or if there's anything else that I can do for you. 

Best regards,
