I have logged into TrailForks.com but this option GPX doesn't appear to be available to me. ¨
This happens when¨Downloading of trail gps tracks in kml & gpx formats is enabled for Gateway¨ for example.
When you go to an individual trail with View Trail, you finally get to a too long series of links that allow you to download one trail, but often a trail will be just a .6 mile connector to others. This is an extremely tedious process to assemble a network of trails/tracks into a larger GPX file for transfer to device. MTBproject allow 1 trail to be downloaded with the same tedious process to build a file.
It was claimed that a region could be downloaded as a GPX or KML file- but this doesn't sem to work?

It's a balancing act we have to play. Making data available to users, but not too easy for someone to just en-mass take TF data for use with a competing product.

We prefer if you use the Trailforks app if you want access to entire trail systems offline. Or if you want to use offline on your Garmin device use on of our Garmin base maps https://www.trailforks.com/tools/garminmaps/

The ability to download all the trails in an entire region to a single GPX or KML file is really meant for trail association admin use.
