- KML/KMZ files can be opened in Google Earth, and many smartphone apps.
- GPX files can be opened by most GPS software apps when KMZ cannot. Note, GPX files do not contain custom colours and icons that we use on our maps; all tracks and icons will appear the same colours and styles. We recommend using KMZ instead when possible.
- GPX-Garmin are GPX files that we have optimized for older Garmin units that only display tracks that contain 500 points or less (such as Garmin eTrex units).
Visit our GPS & Navigation page for instructions of how to use your smartphone as a GPS device (even when outside of data coverage) or how to import data to your Garmin unit.
About the Journey:
This intriguing part of the Trans Canada Trail in the Coquihalla Summit can be challenging for some cyclists. There is no access off the trail for about 25 km requiring one to be self-sufficient while being isolated is a super attraction for many people. A lot of the trail while following the KVR corridor is on service roads and is hilly in places. The highlights are: Bridal Veil Falls from Falls Lake, Needle Creek cathedral-like railroad abutments and piers, Hole-in-the-Wall with a waterfall, the rail grade approaching Portia, tunnels (1 intact, the othesr collapsed), Collpsed snowsheds, Ladner Creek, and the rail grade through Jessica. Allow about 6 hours for this ride and start at the top end of the summit for a much more pleasant ride that allows for more downhill.
