Introduction

 
Bear Creek Spire Route
Bear Creek Spire Track

I created this list of GPS tracks to help facilitate the sharing of GPS data among us Mountaineers. I find it is often hard to find tracks of routes, and they are great for planning. Many of these tracks include photo placemarks that help you visualize what the terrain is like at the exact point the photo was taken along the track. These can all be viewed with Google Earth. If you don't have it installed on your computer, I recommend downloading it now (http://earth.google.com/download-earth.html) as it is a great tool for Mountaineering. The following article has more information on using GPS data with Google Earth (GPS and Google Earth).

For many more GPS Tracks in both Google Earth KMZ format as well as GPX format for uploading to GPS units, check out my website:
