[RC] GPS - Smith, Dave

Just used for the first time my new Garman “Legend” and I have a question for those of you who know something about GPS.  We rode the Western States Trail (Tevis) yesterday from the Hwy.49 crossing to a mile past Poverty Bar.  The Trail signs said that distance was about eight miles one way.  The GPS, however, stated it was only 6.1 miles one way.  Why the discrepancy?  I can’t believe the state parks/WSTF were that far off when posting their signs.  So what’s the explanation?  Thanx.
