To view track log altitude information, you must first send the track log to Google Earth. See this support article for additionalinformation: How do I view a track log in Google Earth on my computer?
When a track log is opened with Google Earth, it lacks altitude information. To view altitude information, select Edit > Show Elevation Profile.
Edit > Show Elevation Profile.
If Show Elevation Profile is selectable, you will see the elevation profile as pictured below.
