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: 

Crippen Regional Park has been added as an alternative to Whyte Lake Loop or as as extra.  It comes off the Trans Canada Trail at Horseshoe Bay by taking a 20 minute ferry to Bowen Island.  There is no need to take a vehicle over for this loop.  The loop is 12 km  if you decide to take in the trail to Dorman Point Lookout ( 2.2km less if left out).  This whole walk is extremely rewarding including restaurants and shops.  Allow up to 4 hours to do the whole trail.
