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: 

This sensational loop comes off the Lochside Trail, an alternate for the TCT from Victoira to the mainland.  It offers a loop within the main loop by taking the fantastic greenway trail around the lake in Elk/Beaver Lake Regional Park.  From there it is connected to the Centennial Trail and a section of the main Trans Canada Trail on the Galloping Goose Trail.  Other highlights include Swan Lake and the iconic Blenkinsop Bridge.  Allow about 4 hours.
