- 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 loop features Coquitlam Town Centre Park with its picturresque Lafarge Lake and the Coquitlam River grand forest trail bordering the continuous soothing sound of the river. Remarkably the beautiful Coquitlam Centre Park grew out a gravel quarry. A walk to be remembered and can now be easily accessed with the Evergreen Line ending on the corner of this park making it that much more accessible. Allow about 3 to 5 hours for this walk. People in wheelchairs should go fully around Town Centre Park and not go along the Coquitlam River where the trail is a gravel surface and has a couple short hills. The Coquitlam River features a mature forest and fish channels. One gets the impression of being completley away from the urban area around this maginificent greenway. Add 3.4 km taking in the Westwood Trail and an opportunity to eat on the edge of Port Coquilam Center near Lions Park.
