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: 

The town of great murals.  This former sawmill or forestry town has transformed itself into a mural capital and a magnet for artisans.  This relatively short walk of wonders will take an extended amount of time because of needing to stop to take in its attractions.  Allow about 3 hours or more.  The trail to rail making up the Trans Canada Trail balances out the town experience with a delightful natural trail.  Try to find parking as near to the train station as possible.
