Prospect Hill (Kuitpo Forest)

Note: (June 2011) A big thanks to the Prospect Hill trail care crew, the trails are all open again. Woohoo…

Trail Maps:
Prospect Hill Map 1 (2.7mb) Updated 5/2012, Prospect Hill XC race track area.

Prospect Hill Map 1 - inset (1.2mb) Updated 5/2012, Higher resolution map of the MTB specific trails.

Prospect Hill Map 2 (1.2mb) Updated 7/2010, Forestry HQ easy green trails.

GPS Maps:
Prospect Hill Map 1 - Garmin 800 custom map (0.5mb) Updated 5/2012. This is a map of the Prospect Hill MTB trails in a Garmin 800 custom map format. Load it into your Garmin 800 then Go Ride.
Please Note: This file needs to have the "kmz" file name extension, some browsers re-name the file with the "zip" file name extension during download. If this happens you need to manually rename it with the "kmz" file name extension to get it to work ie "ProspectHill-Map1-inset.kmz".
Oh and another thing, the custom map doesn't become visible until the zoom is at 800m or more. I find 200m and 120m zooms the most useful for MTB.
