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: 

This fully featured loop comes off the Lochside Trail, an alternate for the TCT from Victoira to the mainland.  It also offers a loop within the main loop by taking in the fantastic greenway trail around the lake in Elk/Beaver Lake Regional Park.  From there it is connected to the Centennial Trail and a section of the main Trans Canada Trail on the Galloping Goose Trail.  Other highlights include Swan Lake with its own walking loop around the lake and the iconic Blenkinsop Bridge.  Allow about 4 hours.
