We are in the process of developing the trails section of this site to support offline functions on mobile devices as much as today’s technology allows. GPS/KML can be loaded into Garmin and TomTom devices as well (see device documentation). We’ve provided a few suggestions on how to download and load map files to various GPS/KML viewing apps.

Please let us know what works, what might not, and suggestions you might have. As technology and various 3rd party apps change frequently, we are not able to keep up with every possibility.
