Fire up your GPS’s! The whole Trans-Minnesota Adventure Trail is now mapped in a GPX file. The file includes some important waypoints as well. There is no reason to wait. Plan your trip today! There are 10 tracks in total and just over 650 miles of Roads and Trails. See the Maps page for more info.

Ahh ya beat me to it. Been fiddling with this idea since I did the TWT a couple weeks ago.
If it helps, here’s a straight mostly gravel path I took from Minnetonka south through Iowa, over the top half of the Dragoon Trail, and into Ames.
I see the file as a .docx format? Mapsource, word, or openoffice can open it. I have modified the extension and am still unable to open it in mapsource. What did you use to create the file?
I tried downloading the GPX file. It’s coming in as a Word file.
The files has a docx extension because WordPress doesn’t allow files with a gpx extension. Just rename the file to have a gpx extension and it will import fine into your gps software. DON’T open the file in Word.
Maybe I need to find another hosting location for these files so this isn’t a problem….hmmmmm.
I changed the file to be hosted at Google. Now you don’t have to rename the file anymore. It has a GPX extension and should import easily into your GPS software.
