Is there a best practice regarding mapping new tracks?

Currently when I found a hiking path that is not yet on OSM, I proceed as follows:

Record the track with the GPS, then drag and drop the GPX file on the OSM editor and manually create a line on the OSM editor.

Is this the best practice or shall I upload the GPX file to allow other to verify it? I’ve seen there is such a functionality (upload GPX track as a public track) but I couldn’t yet figure why it is for.
