Profile bug

When I go to Measure < Profile and trace my route, often it will show a severe and sudden spike in elevation gain or loss, as if there were numerous cliffs along the route. For example, in this screenshot it is telling me that the gross elevation gain is over 17,000 ft, which is impossible. The difference in elevation between the trailhead and the top of the pass should be about 4000 ft. Any thoughts on how to fix this? Thanks!
