PowayTrails.com is a private website that contains information about hiking trails in Poway and is not associated with the City of Poway, California. PowayTrails.com is intended to contain accurate and current information, supported by having hiked the trails.

It is planned to record hiking trail routes with the use of a GPS receiver and to post the resulting edited track in both KML (for use with Google Earth) and GPX (for use with a GPS receiver) formats . The Garmin eTrex Venture HC is an example of a GPS receiver.

Google apparently caches the KML/KMZ files used with Google Maps/Google Earth and the most recent file is not necessarily displayed. We have found that copying the KML/KMZ file to the desktop and using it from there renders it properly in Google Earth.

Corrections and suggestions are encouraged and may be sent to trails@PowayTrails.com.
