    Hi Sharon, Thanks for posting. Your workflow is part of the vision for how to use the Discover tab and finding hikes in the app.

    Since the release of the Discover tab a few months ago, we have been working to improve this feature in the app and on the website. Currently, saved hikes are just visible in the app, however, the option to access them on gaiagps.com is on the to-do list of features to add.

    In the meantime, as a workaround, you can follow these steps to view the hike and print on gaiagps.com:
    1. In the app, open the preview screen for a saved hike> tap the 3 dots in the top right> Share
    2. This will give you a link to this hikes webpage on gaiagps.com
    3. On the hikes page, click GPX/KML > GPX
    4. Upload the GPX file to your account by following these steps.
    5. Then you can print a map with this trail labeled on it.

    Thanks, Robyn!  When I tried to follow the steps I ran into trouble downloading the gpx file. I had installed Google Chrome as suggested but when I put in the URL for downloading the gpx I got a page saying “the site can’t be reached.”  I’ll wait until the kinks are worked out. No problem.

    Sharon, I'm sorry for the trouble. Can you send me a copy of the URL you are using so I can take a closer look at this issue?

    Also, here is a copy of the GPX file for Maze Loop Trail and North View Loop that you can download through DropBox:

    Hi, Robyn,  Here's a screen shot that I took when I couldn't get the GPX.  Unfortunately I can't remember or recreate what I was doing.  Now I can't even find anyplace in Gaia GPS on my iPhone to try to download a gpx file. 

    Thanks for the file.  I don't really need any of this for a practical purpose - I've made a few instructional videos on Gaia GPS for beginners and I was just puttering around to see about the new Discover feature. Thanks!  Sharon
