CannonTracks - 08 Central Rally Tour

The attached .gpx is for a 200 mile ride that tours the lakes, forests, and rustic roads in the vicinity of the 08 Central Rally. The file contains a route and two tracklines of less than 250 points each. If you want a .gdb instead, PM me with an e-mail address and I will send it out.

Big adventure bikes can handle this route.

Another Dual Sport Route for the Rally

This route requires a Michigan ORV sticker ($16.25 - sold where hunting licenses are sold throughout MI area) as a section of it runs on a nice winding mining railroad grade from Crystal Falls through Iron River to Watersmeet, MI.

It is about 212 miles. The GPS file contains a route (that will be less distinct on the RR grade) and two trackline segments of less than 250 points each. If you want the .gdb instead of the .gpx, PM me with an e-mail address and I'll send it to you.

Big adventure bikes can handle this route.

One more route for the rally. . .

This route is about 250 miles but has a few more highway sections. The file contains two trackline sections and one route. If you want a .gdb, PM me with an e-mail address and I will send one.

Big adventure bikes can handle this route.

This route takes in some Michigan sights: Lake Gogebic, the Porcupine Mountains Park, Lake of the Clouds, the Victoria Dam, and the Firesteel Trestles. Since the trestles are on an ORV trail, you will need a MI ORV sticker for $16.25. There will be a fee at the Porkies too.

New GPX Files

For the 13 of you that as of this moment already downloaded the GPX files, I just replaced them with an update. The only change is that I named the routes instead of using autonaming. This will make it easier for you to manage the routes in your unit if you upload multiple routes. Other than that, the routes and tracks remain unchanged.
