- 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 destination loop will provide for quite a variety of optional sub-loops. The main loop has for its spine the Galloping Goose Trail, the E&N Rail Trail, and the Lochside Trail allowing for a variety of destinations in the Saanich Peninsula, Esquimalt and Victoria that include walking loops of as little as 2.5 km to cyle loops that exceed 100 km. As well as that there is an added option of including the Victoria Seaside Touring Loop all of which creates a destination that could involve several days of cycling.
