    Just stumbled on this website and it provides quite a lot of information that is valuable to me as I’m planning on a trip to Joshua Tree next month and want to do a few day hikes.

    Is there anyway to extract the GPS data from the maps? I’d like to load it to my GPSr to use while on the trail.

    Thanks for any help you may be able to provide me.

    Hi Clyde,

    Currently there is not a way to extract the info for GPS devices. You should be fine in JT without that, but it’s a great idea for a site improvement. I’ll see what I can do.

    Update: GPS maps can no be downloaded from the maps page (http://www.hikespeak.com/visitor-center/maps/)
