Data Formats

KML (Google Earth)

KML is the main file type used by Google Earth. If you have Google Earth installed, clicking the KML link should open the trail or point directly in Google Earth for viewing. This is the native file format used by Google Earth, but many other map applications can use and understand KML as well, so if you're not sure which one to download, KML is a good bet.


The GPX format stands for GPS Exchange - a free, open, XML format for exchanging GPS and map data. GPX is compatible with Google Earth, many other mapping programs, and most GPS devices (such as Garmin). Load the file directly into your GPS to help find your way on your next trip!


GeoJSON is a newer, lightweight data exchange format which can be used to quickly share map data and may have a smaller size than KML or GPX. Many professional mapping and GIS applications support the GeoJSON format.

Tony said: I did the majority of this hike back in September. It's a very nice hike with good views of the waterfalls listed as well as a couple others you have to do some research to find. I did not find Log Hollow Falls to be obscured by heavy growth, but there were a few a downed trees that made for less than ideal photos. Upper Log Hollow Falls was a bit obscured by trees, but it is still beautiful. I am hoping to get back out to this area for some backpacking soon.

Jay Frank said: The trailhead is not at the Davidson River, but off of Road 5041 behind Looking Glass Rock. The two waterfalls are fairly well obscured by heavy growth. The view of Looking Glass Rock is beautiful when you arrive at the Blue Ridge Parkway. It is a steep climb in a short distance. The in and out hike is more than the 4 miles stated. It is more like 7 miles. It would not be one of my favorite hikes.
