Maps and GPS tracks

GPS Tracks

Unlike many so called “tracks” you may find on the web, the GPS tracks I post are not tracings done at home on the computer screen! These are the actual tracks from where I walked on the trip.

You’re welcome to download and use them on your GPS.  Mostly they are in a format (.GPX) which can be used on all GPS units.

I post all my GPX tracks to the GPS file sharing site gpsfly.org.   Go to GPSfly.org to see all my GPX tracks   (Will open in a  new browser window)


The maps below are made from National Geographic Topo software.  (Note: This software is no longer sold, but can be found used on Ebay, Craigslist, etc.)

The red line route is the GPS track I recorded, imported into the software.

To print them yourself, open the link.  If the map looks good, then right click, select “Save Image/File As”, save to your hard drive (Under the directory “Awesome Maps by Karl =^),  and then print.

Printing tip:    Save the .jpg map files onto a thumb drive, take the drive to a Fed-Ex office store, and have them print it for you at the counter.  The counter service normally gets you heavier weight paper than at the self-serve machines, and the print quality is a LOT better than you’ll get from your home ink jet printer.

and, if you find these maps or tracks helpful, feel free to buy me a beer from the link at the top. =^)   Doing so will help me pay for web hosting and keep this resource free for everyone to use.




DISCLAIMER:  Along with these maps and tracks, remember to bring your common sense.  If you get lost, mangled, etc. while using these maps or tracks, I have no responsibility for your actions or the result of your hike.

    Found out about your site from the Mazamas ICS class, lecture on Navigation from John Godino. I am new to all this and was playing around with Gaia GPS on the cell phone and trying to download some GPX files. I can’t get your files off GPSfly.org. They download as a data file. I saw you had a post on the forum that asks the same question, but how do you take that downloaded data information and confert to a usable GPX?

      This may be a bit late, but try downloading, and emailing to your self. Access the file from your phone, and open with Gaia.
