GPS Downloads

  • 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 fascinating loop takes in a Heron Centre that is a 'must visit'  along with its bogs, the Vedder River, and forested trails.  The Vedder River is a fishers mecca and in the spring people flock to see the 40 plus pairs of nesting herons, a sight to be seen before the trees sprout their leaves.  Before being developped as a greenway and park the Department of National Defence used the area extensively to practice their drills, especially in the bog areas.  Allow a good three hours for this visit.
