GPS Info

I tried opening the GPS maps you posted on the web site but got the message they were done in a different version of MapSource....I believe you used Parks & Rec? I have TOPO & MetroGuide. Anyone have a suggestion?
I would like very much to do part if not all of this ride.
Giving all the credit to those that deserve it, the Adventure Cycling Bicycle Group has put together all the information you need to do any part of this trip. They can provide the book, detail maps and the GPS waypoints and routes. The GPS routes can be found here Adventure Cycling GPS data

Update to the most current version of Map Source and then import the .mps files. Works like a charm.

We found the GPS data to be very accurate and highly recommend you use a GPS and the waypoints if attempting this trip. We found the printed routes and maps much harder to use and not nearly as accurate as the GPS waypoints.
