    I found a public source for a Google Earth file and then converted this to a GPX file and uploaded it to Gaia GPS. This one is very detailed showing all of the reference lines: https://www.gaiagps.com/datasummary/folder/a695a543-2632-43a3-9440-1c684919d8c2/?layer=GaiaTopoRasterFeet

    Here was the original source. http://xjubier.free.fr/en/site_pages/SolarEclipsesGoogleEarth.html

    Great suggestion. Whether you are looking for a hiking trail or any other track there are many free sources online. Just search for what you are looking for and add GPX to your search. For example Bright Angel Trail GPS. One of the results was from GaiaGPS but others were returned as well. You can then download and import these tracks into your account.

    Thank you, Chris.  This is exactly what I was looking for.  And working with it is leading me to learn more about maps and the application.  I appreciate your time and explanation.

    That link is now dead (the Gaia folder).

    Thanks for the heads up on the link to the folder on gaiagps.com.

    The KMZ files from the original source Chris linked can also be imported directly into Gaia GPS.

    I am new to gaia. I would like an overlay for the october 14 2023 annular solar eclipse path in utah. How would I find it if it's available? Then how would I install/import it?

    in-the-sky.org has a KMZ overlay of the eclipse that you can import into Gaia GPS.

    Here's the link to webpage: https://in-the-sky.org/news.php?id=20231014_09_100

    The link to the KMZ is in the paragraph above the map showing the path of the eclipse.

    Once you download the file, here are the steps for importing the file: Import GPX, KML, KMZ, GeoJSON, or FIT Files on gaiagps.com

    If you have any further questions, please contact Support here.
