GPX Files - Miscellaneous - 6/9/15 version
The gpx files shown below are unfiltered. Different GPS receivers have differing file length requirements, so I leave the filtering up to those who need it. The files are actual ridden tracks (with a few hand drawn road sections that I will eventually ride). There is usually no elevation info.
There are two versions of the RBT files; the first version has a time associated with each trackpoint, the second does not have a time associated with each trackpoint. GoogleEarth requires time and MapSource doesn't want time. Download the version you want or get them all; they're small enough. (I'm still looking into this situation, but this is all I can find out right now.)

RBT.gpx and RBTaccess.gpx - these files are a pair. RBT.gpx is the Rainbow Trail and RBTaccess.gpx has the routes to the access points along the trail. You can pick a start and end point to suit your time constraints and/or riding ability. Local Salidans like to start at Methodist Mtn and end at Bear Creek for a nice after-work ride.
