Created segment modified from my original upload

I uploaded a segment from accurate GPS data and the segment was modified when it showed up on the map. The trail splits for a short period and one way is easier, one way is rocky. I'm trying to create the segment down the rocky trail and it keeps automatically modifying my segments to the easy side. I deleted it the first time an recreated it with the same result.

  • I would suggest you submit a help ticket for this.  Strava staff rarely look over these questions, so it may be a long time before you potentially get an answer through this forum.

  • @David - Happy to help out. Have you read our help article about creating good segments? If it's still hitting all the criteria, let me know and we can figure out what's going on.

  • Jess, I've read the article on creating good segments and have made quite a few private and public segments. This is a public segment but it's short at 0.27 miles and has switchbacks which I guess is causing problems. I've made similar segments before without this issue.

    There are lines on the Strava map indicating trails in the park but it doesn't include the rocky option I made the segment on. This trail is an old established option so it isn't a new section. Does Strava correct some segments to match up with known trails?

    It isn't showing up on "segment explore" yet. I'll probably just ride it a few more times and see how things shake out. If it's prone a lot of accuracy issues I'll just delete it.

  • David,

    I'd have to look at the segment to confirm if Strava's correcting the segment. If it's an unknown trail, then likely the the map may be correcting.

  • Now that it loaded other riders efforts I think the trails are just to close together. Looking at my created segments it followed the trail I wanted it to but it picks up whenever someone rides the other trail too. I thought the trails would be far enough apart but seems like they aren't. Most people ride the smoother way which follows the Strava map. The way I made the segment takes a fork to the left for about half the segment onto a rocky trail.
