This new Caltopo map site is a great resource for route planning and sharing maps, gps data, etc. Here is the user guide.

Gmap4 is another enhanced Google map viewer.

It can display GPX, KML, KMZ, TPO and Google My Places maps.
Example KML file (with UTM grid):  
http://www.mappingsupport.com/p/g..._Creek.kml&t=t4&coord=utm

You can do trip planning and click once to make both a waypoint and routepoint.  Menu ==> Draw and save.  Save your work as a GPX file.

If you open a Gmap4 link with the browser on a mobile device, then you automatically see a touch friendly interface.  Note that the browser has to be online.

If you are GIS savvy, Gmap4 can display any data available via REST or WMS.
Examples: http://www.mappingsupport.com/p/gmap4_gis-viewer.html#example_usa

The Gmap4 homepage has a FAQ, examples, quick start info (in the Help file) and more to quickly get you up to speed.

Gmap4 default map: http://www.mappingsupport.com/p/gmap4.php

Gmap4 homepage:  http://www.mappingsupport.com/p/gmap4.html

Wow, thanks for posting all of these!

I've been posting some of my GPS tracks to connect.garmin.com. More for personal tracking and fitness, but if you have a link to the "activity", posted trips are available for download in multiple formats. No user is required for download. Tracks can be directly viewed on the site and played in Bing or Google maps with additional metrics. Not really for route planning\topo needs but if you know a route exists its a place to grab it. I've been starting to add links to my tracks on SummitPost log entries I write.

With all of the experience here it would be great to have a .gpx repository specific to San Gabes and surrounding areas. It could make some of these trips a lot more accessible.
