t59 Nanaimo River to Departure Bay on the Trans Canada Trail
- 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:
For more detail information go to the Trans Canada Trail on the Trails BC website at this link. Nanaimo has succeeded connecting several greenways to make up the Trans Canada Trail. Those walking should take the Abyss Trail between Extension and Nanaimo proper for a better experience. The main highlights are Extension itself, the parks and greenways, Buttertubs Marsh, Bowen Park, and the Nanaimo Waterfront.
