Thanks

ravenranger, muchas gracias. That link for the GPS Visualizer was perfect. I downloaded the file from this thread and selected it from the GPS Visualizer "choose file". It converted it into a .kmz and I was able to select it from that sites conversion and it opened and saved into Google Earth.
There was no need for the other tutorial link, converting .gpz to .kmz.

Thank you very much.

And here's a free app to translate gpx to kmz:
www.gpsvisualizer.com

I just tried opening the gpx in Google Earth and it did fine. This is what I did:
1 - open Google Earth
2 - On the menu bar choose File then Open
3 - In the Finder Window I choose the gpx I want
4 - click Open and Google Earth zoomed right in

I hadn't known until I started looking that Google Earth can read gpx files without having to convert them first. So, if you don't want to deal with converting, you can simply open Google Earth and then open the gpx file through GE's file menu.

Meanwhile, it's nice to know GPS Visualizer works so well.

This worked even better. Thanks again.

When I was trying this before, I was short cutting the step of file/open/downloads and trying to pull the gpx file from the download popup on the dock (which wasn't working) instead of getting it from the download folder in finder. Those of you with a Apple will know what I mean.

The shorter dirt road route looks fun. Soon as I get my bike plated I'd like to try it.
