I looked, couldn't find them all that easy. Is the format GPX?

Cheers,

The GPS coordinates are posted as a list of 102 waypoints along the route in UTM format. As far as I can tell there is no GPX format provided, but creating something like that would be beneficial to upload to a receiver. The list and a map of the trail are within the PDF file "Monkman GPS hiking co-ordinates and trail map", which is linked off of the following page:

Also be careful to change your DATUM in your GPS to NAD27 as I see that is what the BC Gov list is in.

The error between NAD27 and the more common/modern NAD83/WGS84 datums varies from very close to a couple hundred meters separation.
