There are three ways to use the OwlsheadGPS Project website:

1.  You can use our MapViewer to view interactive maps of designated OHV routes in the Project Area on a choice of backgrounds:  base roads, satellite imagery, or topographic.  

The familiar and easy-to-use Google Maps interface allows you move across the map, zoom in and out, and print your own maps.  Click on a route to launch a popup balloon with information about the route and links to download a GPS route file to your computer.

2.  You can download our GPS Map of OHV routes to install onto your Garmin GPS device.  As you drive within the Project Area you can view your location on the GPS Map and receive real-time feedback regarding the status of the routes you encounter.

3.  You can download our GPS Route Files in GPX and KML formats to view on your PC or Mac.  Open the file using popular programs like Google Earth, National Geographic Topo, and Garmin Basecamp.  Check the documentation for your mapping software to see if it will open or import GPX or KML files.
