Is anyone interesting in waypoints for hiking trails? I have several - I use my GPS while hiking. It creates a track, I convert it to a series of waypoints. I have uploaded many to a Trail Registry site.
Is there interest in posting these here also?
Yes, hiking trails waypoints would be nice to have.
I'm in N.Carolina, and have had the same thought. But, it depends on where you're located, as to whether it would have any use for me.
I'd love to see the waterfalls POI'd up near the Blue Ridge Parkway. I've only made it to a couple so far but I hear there are lots and lots more to be seen. NC is such a beautiful state... I'm from Texas originally, and about all there is to offer there is steak, good tequila, and lots and lots of flat land...not that I don't like it, just happen to have fallen in love with NC.
What's the web address for it?
The site I have contributed to is www.trailregistry.com
I have contributed about 70 miles of hiking trails so far. These are well waypointed trail routes, not just the trailhead and destination.
For example, I uploaded a hike in Banff National Park (Lake Louise to Lake Agnes Tea House) which was about 7.5 miles in length - there are more than 500 waypoints each one includes elevation.
If it is of benefit and the design of this site supports storing lots of hikes, would be glad to cross-post them here.
...is up to Miss POI & JM. I'd vote against it. The registry seems to be a good site, well organized, from just browsing it for a second.
I'd rather see this site offer stuff that no one else is posting on the web, such as city attractions, waterfalls, etc.
Trailheads and notable POIs along trails are okay to post at POI Factory, but we're not setup to handle tracklogs (which trace the entire trail route).
If anyone is interested I found this site for free camping coordinates: http://www.boondocking.org/poi.html
I know this is an old thread at this point, but if the web site http://rohland.homedns.org/AT/at_menu.aspx has a bunch of GPS coordinates for parking along the Appalachian trail.
Here's a site for downloading KML files for Waterfalls in the Pacific Northwest.
I do have some hiking trails that I'd like to share as well. I don't want to randomly post though. Is there some sort of organization, by State, by region? etc? Mine are most of Southern California and Hawaii.
I'm looking for the actual GPS unit itself, any ideas? Any recommendations?
I,m also interested in waterfalls, I was in a little town called Spruce Pine yesterday, browsing one of the shops and found a book entitled Great Waterfalls of North Carolina. Purchased it for 20 bucks. It has probably 50 waterfalls listed with directions to the loactions and the trails that lead to the falls. Gives detailed directions with distance of trails and such.
I would love to have the coordinates for even just the trail heads.
Yes, the locations of trailheads on the Blue Ridge Parkway would be nice if anyone has those. I was just there and will be going back to pack and hike the area.
