Welcome To The Monday Ramblers

We Hike The Olympic Peninsula...

New Format For Hike Routes & Elevations



                                                                        New as of 3/15/2019


As of May, 2018 the free service provided by Garmin Inc. to post topo routes and elevations charts was shut down.  Since many Ramblers enjoy examining this information for upcoming hikes a new repository was needed and 'Gaia GPS' was selected as a temporary solution.  As of March 2019 a new service has been selected. Garmin has come up with a replacement called 'Garmin Connect' and all of our hike routes and profile data are now using this format.  Please take a look and tell us what you think.

On the route map you'll see a button for map layers which allows you to select various map types and another button with two arrows pointing away from each other.  Click that two-arrow button and your map will go to full screen for more detailed viewing. There's also plus and minus buttons for zooming in and out.

Scrolling down, you'll see Elevation, Pace, and sometimes Temperature charts with other stats at the bottom.  

Notice that if you place your cursor on the elevation chart there will be a corresponding mark on the topo map showing you exactly where that elevation takes place on the trail.

One thing to note; below the map on the right you'll see two boxes with the words 'Time' and 'Distance'.  Click on the 'Distance' box. This changes the Elevation and Pace charts to reflect distance instead of time on the charts.

One of the advantages of using Garmin Connect is that it gets all the stats directly from the actual GPS data instead of from trail maps that Gaia had to use. Therefore no need for 'notes' correcting any discrepancies such as actual distance and total ascent. A real limitation to the Gaia data was the Ascent report. It seemed to use the highest elevation minus the lowest elevation.  It did not take into account all the ups and downs throughout the hike.
