Mapping a trail with bread crumbs didn’t work out for Hansel and Gretel. Using  down-loadable trail maps, a GPS app on your phone, and Google satellite images on your computer, you can layout a trail of electronic bread crumbs that should work much better. Most GPS applications store data in text documents based on KML, a markup language. Moving this text file between GPS programs will allow planning and saving routes.  Feel free to bring your lunch with you as former park host, Mark Troester, shares his expertise to help enhance your outdoor experiences.  Location:  Nature Center.
