Welcome to the new and improved TRSA Routes Library!
We have undertaken a complete overhaul of our Routes Library and now it is much easier to view maps and elevation profiles then DIRECTLY download a map (pdf) and gpx files for all our routes.
Please note, we are all volunteers and we have done our best to make it as easy as possible to access our comprehensive list of Routes by removing third party sites, and to future-proof our repository of files. If you have any other Routes you’d like added, these can be provided to us as a gpx file to firstname.lastname@example.org and if you have any other tips and tricks, please send them through or share them to the Trail Running SA Lounge page. We encourage a community led approach to Routes problem solving and sharing.
Below are some instructions and some tips and tricks.
TIPS AND TRICKS
- All of this is much easier on a Desktop but if you’re using a phone, a couple of pointers:
- These instructions only relate to downloading the gpx file from our website. You’ll need a map viewing/navigation app on your phone to view and use the gpx file. We recommend Guru Maps or All Trails. There are others including watch specific software to share a gpx file to your watch (e.g. Garmin Connect)
- If you’re using an iPhone use either Safari or Firefox as your web browser, NOT Chrome.
- DO NOT OPEN THE FILE IN FACEBOOK. Instead, navigate to the TRSA website via a browser and click on the Route of interest to download the gpx file.
VIEWING AND DOWNLOADING ROUTES
- Scroll down and click on the name of the Route you are interested in. They have all been named consistently with location – event distance (where applicable) – actual distance (km).
- This will take you to the dedicated Route overview page where you can view a map, distance and follow a link to view and download the map and elevation profile, OR a direct download of the map as a pdf.
- If you like, you can also download a gpx file on this screen by clicking on ‘Details’ in the right hand corner of the map window, which will present you with the option to download a gpx file.
- If you’d prefer to see the elevation profile alongside the map before downloading, then click the link to ‘view and download the map and elevation, click here’ and you will be directed to a new page. Scroll down and hit the DOWNLOAD button to download the gpx file
