A resource for leaders taking groups out on a Tuesday. Year-Round Routes can be covered at any time, but the Summer Routes are often off road and unlit during winter.

Each route can be viewed online, or downloaded as either a PDF or zipped GPX file. Viewing online will take you to the Mapometer.com website where the route can be viewed in various formats, you can zoom in and out and print. To download the PDF or GPX, right-click on the appropriate link and choose the “Save link as…” option. For reasons of security, the GPX files have been zipped, so once the zip file how been downloaded it will need to be opened to extract the .gpx file.
