Unless otherwise specified, my trip reports are my own routes. Most of the time, I download a trail from AllTrails that I want to start at and then it will show me all the other trails in the area. With the GPS always being accurate even offline (so far in my experience with it), I can then get creative and make the run my own.
For every trip report, I have a link to the AllTrails I started with, and then to my Strava account to show my actual trail.
Never put yourself in an unsafe position. Never fully rely on your cell phone to get you back to your car. Always pay attention and make sure you know what trails you are taking, what turns you are making and what direction you are heading. If any of these things are in question, do an out and back until you can get your bearings or find the TH.
