We often hike in very rough terrain where we are traveling at steep angles up and down mountains. At the end of the day, if the track mileage record says " 5 miles," has that mileage been computed only on a straight line? If so, then our actual miles walked would be considerable more. Or does the milage include the miles walking up these steep angles? And if you are climbing down a vertical rock wall, will your mileage compute to zero???
