Well,

I did an overlay of the maps (Nice work BTW with the KML file), and found the only trail we really missed was the bottom of the Billy Goat Climb. I have to say climbing Billy Goat trail was one of my faves, a techy but not too techy climb. I wish there was more of it... I could have done that for an hour :)

thanks
phil

Thanks Jon for the info,

I will check that out tonight

Nickwrx, I use a Garmin Edge 305. Simply upload after a ride to MotionBased!

I think I hit that top speed blasting down that straight-line descent down to CCC camp!

You could try to drop that kml over this one I've got on the map page :
http://www.wnymba.org/static/maps/eville.kml and compare. Right now, that one is all one color, which is no good, since everything looks the same (trails, skid roads, forest boundaries, etc.) ( click here to view the kml in Google maps). Fixing it is on my to-do list (lower priority than redoing web site so people stop getting the impression that the lounges is WNYMBA!)

Better to drape your kml (in google earth, raster kmls don't seem to work well in google maps) over this raster kml that contains the whole map to see what you did and what you missed: http://www.wnymba.org/static/maps/evill ... rast_2.kml

thats awesome what GPS device did you use to make that map.

34 miles in Eville is impressive i like the 34mph top speed too.

A few of us Ontarians came down to ride on Saturday. I'd like to commend you all on maintaining such a great system of trails! Here is the route we took:

I'm wondering if we missed anything that should be added to the list for next time?

Cheers!
