Add tracking mechanism to members page for mileage and altitude gained on club trips for yearly totals-ie:100,000ft gained, etc.
This would enhance club trip participation- esp among members that join groups like Meet Up and others. Would drive demand for more trips- esp hikes, hopefully driving more Leader participation as a result. It'd also be fun- great for bragging rights.
I think you have what you need now. It's your My Activities page, https://www.mountaineers.org/profile/activities. It does show all of your activities, your status, and the trip status. Clicking on the activity title gives you the details for that activity. The leader does need to close the trip for the trip status to show. Please feel free to ask/remind leaders to do that. Please take a look at this and let me know what more you think is needed to meet your needs.

My health insurance offers discounts for members that are physically active. The problem is, they only account for events that have verifiable outcomes. Like paid for marathons or runs with websites documenting results. If this feature was developed in a way that my health insurance could consume the data, I would get cheaper health insurance. Please consider this.

Coming soon hopefully. We are able to gather this data now - but pumping it onto the website is a whole other job that will take some time. We can run reports for people/committees now and are looking at ways to make this more accessible. In the meantime, the priority is data accuracy in the "input" stage of things.
Dennis, there are updates coming to Routes/places that allow leaders to edit the mileage and gain etc.

Don't rely on distance and eg from Routes/Place though,. Those are one-size-fits all estimates that don't reflect the realities of the trip.I believe this compels someone to record the stats after the fact.
