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 is a highly featured Loop taking in the Spirit Trail, Capilano Regional Park, and the Mosquito Creek Trail.  It is a sensational walk from the Seashore up into deeply forested mountainside along with canyon views.  One particular interest is the ability to view fish ladders in the Capilano Fish hatchery facility.  Be prepared for a whole day excursion of about 5-6 hours or more.  Best to start it either at the Fish Hatchery or in Ambleside Park.
