    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.

    GPX

    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

    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.

    Creeker said: Started at the FS 464 (Pineola Rd.). In about ~200 yards, you come to the intersection of the Persimmon Ridge Trail that goes to the right. In this intersection area, is a small primitive campground. Also in this area was a good size rattler. The dog & I walked around it and took a picture. The rattler had 10 rattles on its tail. Glad we saw the snake. Not a real fancy hike, not too hard. Nothing to really see as far as views or waterfalls. Ends at the Harper Creek trail.
