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 colour and styles. We recommend using KMZ instead of GPX if possible.

The files below include data for only this specific area. For all of our Trans Canada Trail data for the entire province (including features, campsites and alternate routes), download our BC.kmz master file (1.2 MB)

About the Route: 

This route makes a great bypass of the Myra Canyon for equestrian trail users - or for everyone when the Myra Canyon becomes temporarily closed.

Connection Points to the TCT: 

For Eastbound travellers, this alternate route begins at Ruth Station, taking June Springs Road on the your right. The road travels north and east, steadily climbing 200 metres of elevation for about 3.5 kilometres before leveling off.

Westbound travellers on the KVR who are bypassing the Myra Canyon will leave the rail trail at Myra station. The rail trail is travelling south - so users of the bypass will turn left (east) onto the service road. The road runs east for 70 metres before turning south (parallel and uphill of the rail trail). The bypass climbs roughly 200 metres over a 9.3 km distance.

Parking & Staging Areas

Staging areas can be found on either side of this route - the eastern parking area at Myra Bellevue Provincial Park provides plenty of room.
