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 Loop featues Burrard Inlet between the Lions Gate Bridge and the Second Narrows Iron Workers Memorial Bridge along with False Creek, and Coal Harbour.  The main highlights are Lonsdale Quay, the Spirit Trail in North Vancouver, Stanley Park, English Bay, Sunset Beach, Vanier Park, Granville Island, Olympic Village, New Brighton Park, Lynn Creek with its parks, and North Vancouver waterfront.  It also takes in two thriving Squamish Nation communities, the Mission and Capilno Communities.  It offers several shorter loops by using the SeaBus.  Major and highly featured side loops are Stanley Park and False Creek.

This loop intersects with the Vancouver North Burnaby Loop and the North Shore Loop.  Furthermore, it offers an easy connection to the Seymour-Lynn Valley loop all of which allows for a number other excursions.
