Unfortunately, we don't have GPX data for the trails, and creating GPX data for trails is way beyond the scope of this project. Turn-by-turn directions would be complicated by trails with optional loops/sections, bi-directional sections, etc. How do we know whether you want to turn right or continue straight?
Steve does a lot of work mapping his local trails in OpenStreetMap. I wonder if it's possible to easily export any of that data into a useful GPX file that we could make available for download. Can a GPX file be used to just generically render trail/road segments on a GPS device, or is it limited to representing directional point-to-point routes?

If you look at the trail guide for proud lake you can see the loop 4 track that I drew out, none of the side routes and shortcuts show yet ( i didn't add them). Does anyone else know the process more in detail? Looks like someone else added part of the kensington connector..
