Is it possible to join two or more listed trails into one "hike" GPX trail?  How to do that?
Thanks in advance, newbie here.

Hey Steve,

That's a great question! I think you bring up a great question! Are you hoping to combine the routes because the full hike is one of the most popular routes in the area, or were you hoping to combine the routes for a personal hike? Let me know, and we can go from there!

Best regards,
Mikhaila

Yes, in our area (Salt Lake City) there's a group of trails in an area called "Dimple Dell".  Due to knee problems, and a history of smoking and sedentary job,  I can't do the longer, more elevated trails. However, I'm trying to join a few of the trails to make an "incrementally" longer trail to import into my Garmin Fenix 5x, to follow.  The trails are already well marked, but they are singular, and to go from one trail, then go on another one, and finally a third to end up back at the start is what I can't figure out how to do.  I have discovered a program that is a '.GPX Editor", and have modified the trails into the route I want, but haven't figured out how to actually join the 3 into 1.

Hey Steve,

If you want to send a file with each of the .gps tracks to mikhaila@adventureprojects.net I should be able to get everything stitched together for you! Let me know if there's anything else that I can help with.

Best regards,
Mikhaila

If you have a Mac, there's an app called GPX Editor available from the Mac App Store that allows you to easily combine GPX trails.

I've used this site with good success in the past  - gotoes.org/strava/Combine_G…

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
