We are proud of our park map coverage. Our park mapping project has .gpx and .kmz files on about a dozen parks. That means you can google earth these trails. There are more traditional trail maps for another dozen parks. For instance we just added maps and information links for West Friendship Park. We invite your contributions to our archives; either gps files or plain maps are welcome. Just email them over.
Not only that but many club members who are knowledgable about specific parks have volunteered to serve as park guides if you'd like to ride these parks. See out Trail Guides PDF file for available guides. What a great resource for our club!!
