  • I'm looking for a google earth file of the trail
  • Can anyone tell me where I might find a google earth file of the ADT like a KML or KMZ or GPX file? Please contact me if you know of one.

    Thank you, Bruce

    • Hi Bruce, I've not been there obviously, but I got some success with Google. The search phrase "American Discovery trail" filetype:kmz (type the double quotes as shown) gives some results. You could also try filetype:kml, but I doubt if Google will help you with filetype:gpx. In the links above is the ADT society, and I guess you contacted them already.
