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: 

Richmond is becoming a greenway mecca.  This extraordinary loop is completely greenway featuring the Salish Sea foreshore banks, a whole fisheries heritage area along the south arm of the Fraser, great eateries, and a whole abandoned railway corridor to close the loop to the north arm of the Fraser River.  The rail corridor is best seen during the summer when the vegetation has really taken root.  And, there is absolutely no climbing involved.   Allow 4 to 5 hours and more allowing some time visiting in the heritage sites.
