- 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 unforgetable hike along the Pacific Coast is somewhat rugged in places. It allows for shorter less rugged by-passes (magenta track) that miss the truly iconic viewpoints that have viewing platforms. It is a trail that is still in progress with the eventual goal of joining up with the Pacific Rim National Park with its maginficent sandy beaches. This trail is quite a contrast to Long Beach showing off the ruggedness of the Pacific Coast with the sea ravaging its rock cliffs and its effects on the vegetation. There are opportunities to go on the beach when the tide is out or heading out when on the lighthouse part of the trail. Allow about 3 hours to explore the whole trail. Go to this website for a brochure about the trail.
