- 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 loop which gets somewhat hilly at times offers a variety of superb greenways. Through Coquitlam these are Scott Creek, Hoy Creek, Coquitlam Centre Park, the Coquitlam River and the David Ave Parkway. In Port Moody and Ioco, it takes in Sasamat Lake, Bedwell Bay, Belcarra Regional Park, and the Shoreline Trail along Moofy Inlet to Rocky Point Park. As an aside do not miss noticing probably the largest Sitka Spruce in the whole Fraser Valley and Lower Mainland just at the entrance of Hoy Creek next to the Barnet Hwy. This loop is best cycled counterclockwise. Allow 4 to 5 hours.
