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: 

As well as the Trans Canada Trail, this Loop combines a portion of the City of North Vancouver Green Necklace Trail  and Spitit Trail with their greenways and parks. A stretch of the Green Necklace along Keith Road connects the historically significant Victoria Park with Queen Mary Elementary and its community gardens.  The Grand Boulevard affords views towards the City of Vancouver. From here in a clockwise direction one enters the forested sections of the route.  Allow 3 to 4 hours. Add 2.5 kms for a total of 15.5k when adding the optional routing.  Best done clockwise starting at Brigman Park.
