Is there any app or program that takes GPS file for two trails and reports back which is more challenging?

Dear group, does anyone have a recommendation for any "compare-trails software, site or app..." ??

So you know a trail well, and you have a plt or gpx file of it ... and you are trying to decide if a trail you would like to do is more or less challenging... you stare at the profiles and check the % max, min, avg... but it's really hard to know if it is physically similar or more or less challenging...

it would be great to load both gpx or plt files on the program and get a report that kind of says: this track is more challenging and this is why (then of course you do it and decide if you agree or not... but at least you had a reference!)

anything like that exist??
