Cool, thanks! I've got the BMW (Garmin) Nav III. I assume I could just delete the tracks that aren't appropriate. Could you post it for me?

The tracks are the boarder to boarder active log divided by 20 with each track filtered to 500 points so the 20 tracks will fit into a 60/76, etc.

You can delete the ones where you are not riding but you could also take the active log, cut it to the part you are interested in and then make 20 500 point tracks out of that and get more resolution than my 20 for the whole enchalada.

Don't understand "could you post"? They are on GPSXchange.com About half way down in Private Libraries. No posting required to read my files.

Planning to use the Adventure cycle association maps for the route, for reference.
How worthwhile are these maps? I've got all the tracks, but just AAA state paper maps. Is the route the same (I guess I can check by downloading the GPS data from adventurecycling.org)? I plan to ride from Santa Fe, NM, to Grand Teton NP around the second week of Sept. I'll be camping, but on a big bike with Tourances, so I may want to avoid some more technical sections.

How does the Great Parks route compare to the GDR?

An Update on the Idaho Part

I rode the Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming CD route last July. I used Big Dog's GPS route and it worked fine. Thanks BIGDog. But the old railroad tunnel in Idaho has fallen in and is closed. It looked like the roof failed about half way through the tunnel and lots of big rocks fell in. I had to back track and find another way around. Sure hated to see the old tunnel like that, I love riding through tunnels.

Carl-
That's interesting, as I rode the trail in early August, and the one spot I deviated from Big Dog's route was that tunnel in Idaho, as it was getting late, and I wanted to cross into Wyoming before dark. I really enjoy tunnels as well, so it was a tough choice to skip it. Funny how it works.

Thank you Mark for the route, it was all that and more.

I wonder when it fell. For some unrelated reason we bypassed that section in July '07 too.

Old Tunnel

That tunnel is on the south end of the 30 mile stretch of abandoned railroad rails to trail. If I was doing it again I would skip the RR stretch. The volcanic soil was loose and wash boarded. After a recent rain it would be firmer and ok to ride on, but after a long dry period it is like riding on loose sand with lots of whoops. Lots of ATVs all over it too. Here are some photos with one of the tunnel.

There is a trail on the outside of the tunnel that would allow you to pass. Everyone I encountered said this section was hell on a motorcycle due to deep gravel and rutting by 4 wheelers.

Is the New Mexico part of this route still doable? I am mainly worried about hitting snow in the mountains. If not can you recommend a route in New Mexico, I am headed to El Paso and then to Tierra Del Fuego coming from Denver, CO.

Help?

I'm not very bright. In fact, I might be a bit of a stump. Specifically, I'm talking about GPS and getting this ride into my Zumo.
My bro and I are leaving for the CD ride, south to north, in early July on a couple 1150 GS rides. I can't seem to figure it out!
Can someone give me step by step instructions on getting there, A to Z? I need the instructions in English, with a minimum of .bfd, .pdq, .ftw type of lingo.
I humbly await your responses...
Thanks
Mark

Not a Zumo guy, but from what I know of them - It's going to take some doing to make this file work on a Zumo. And no offense, but it doesn't sound like you will be able to do it. Hopefully someone else can help you out.

No offense taken at all. I know I can't figure it out on my own, but are you saying that it can't be done on a Zumo by a smart person? Maybe a third grader or something like that? If so I bought the wrong GPS. Dang it. Any one else with a good idea?
