Fall, 2015. I hope to add more maps and Google Earth files in the future - stay tuned!

Below are two versions of maps of some of the trails on the Franklin Pierce University Rindge Campus. You can view them in your browser or download them as pdf files.

If you use Google Earth, you can download the kmz package to view the trails in Google Earth. And, depending on your GPS unit or GPS App for your phone or tablet, you may be able to import the KMZ file to your GPS - it worked great for me in BackCountry Navigator on my Android phone and in Gaia GPS on my iPad. Have fun!

11/5/2015, BREAKING NEWS! I just learned of the free app huntstand which appears to have many of the same features that BackCountry Navigator and Gaia GPS have (Thanks Jesse!). I haven't had a chance to check it out, so if you use it, let me know what you think. Here's the website: huntstand. Of course, you can search for it on Google Play or the App Store.

And especially for Smartphones, Tablets, or GPS Units:

KML file without waypoints
(I've found that Google Earth waypoint formatting gets changed when used in non-Google Earth Apps.)

If the KMZ or KML files won't import into your GPS, try these GPX files - they may work (You may need to right click and "Save link as" . . . for me it worked to do this to save to my computer, then email to myself to download on my phone - you may find a better way!).

This free software will convert to other GPS style files. Try it if you like - it's how I generated the GPX files from KML files.
