Trailpeak and GPS
Trailpeak and GPS go back a long way, since our founding days in Vancouver Canada in 2001. We were the first site in North America to anticipate that sharing GPS data trails would become popular.
Now, GPS appears everywhere from cell phones to low cost hand held devices. We offered a GPS course to thousands across Canada in the early days, and many of our users have
since gained great confidence outdoors and this has allowed them to explore the mountains, rivers, forests by foot, bike, ski or other -- to make outdoor sport and nature a
bigger part of their lives. We promote self-supported adventure for all these reasons, and, the site www.trailpeak.com is maintained by several volunteer moderators across
the country, with software development and hosting being our significant. We feel that new features are the key to our service, and we have in-house development. Our new features and software development are in-house and low cost but they still cost. As a result, we do
rely on those that have used trailpeak or found it helpful to them, to consider becoming a premium member which provides a number of features. All our site functionality other than GPS downloads are free and if you have GPS data to give even that's free (1 upload to get 3 downloads). Trailpeak was
started by Kurt Turchan, and has become Canada's largest trails web-site built by Canadians. Feel free to email Kurt using the Contact Us button at the bottom of the "about us" page (click about us top), or pass along a note
to any of our regional editors located in BC, Alberta, Ontario, PEI, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, or Quebec. Thanks for supporting us.
