- 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 is a walking loop that takes in Brae Island Regional Park and a heritage walk through Fort Langley. Brae Island along with MacMillan Island sits in the Fraser River and the trail allows for short walks to the river's edge. This relatively short walk allows time to visit the Fort itself along with the Centennial and Auto Museum. Also the walk passes by a new neighbourhood along the Fraser, a former major mill site and the mouth of the Salmon River, a past inland route for the fur trade. The transformed train station museum adds interest and there is a superb view of a pictureque small heritage white church on the Kwantlen Reserve across the Bedford Channel of the Fraser River viewed from the Langley Marine Park. Allow about 2.5 hours for the walk itself knowing that you will want to spend addtional time visiting in Fort Langley along with taking advantage of the shops in this artisan community.
