Jim --

A gal out in Washington State, Bette Filley, did that.  She was
sure that the generally regarded distances were incorrect, so
she grabbed her kids and a measuring wheel and did a check
on the trails of Mount Rainier.  She wrote the definitive book
on the mountain, published about 12-yrs. ago, and still on
the shelves of your neighborhood book seller, or on the web
at Alibris and Amazon.

Read recently that a part of the AT was measure thusly too.
Can't remember the source though.


Best to you,
