- 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.
