    Does anyone have any GPS tracks for the route around the back of Gander Lake? Also looking for route info from Botwood area to the Glenwood area start to Gander Lake.

    This is helping to contribute to a Guinness World Record bid to cross Canada/US with the minimal amount of pavement possible.

    They will be leaving my house to head west on the TCAT. Fun little adventure for them.

    Feel free to PM me.

    Thanks
    Mike

    I assume this is to bypass around the washouts on the T'Railway?

    No, this is to have an alteneate route to the T'Railway to cross the island both ways on different routes for the world record bid.

    A friend of mine drove around Gander Lake a couple of weekends ago in a Santa Fe! The new transmission line is like the Autobahn compared to the old woods road.

    I don't suppose he has GPS tracks?

    Sorry. This map is all he has. Note the unplanned detour he took. Haha
    Route he took was from Mint Brook road to Dead Wolf road to Transmission Line to Beaver Brook road.
    His quote: "If I can do it, anybody can!"

    I did this route last summer. I don't have GPS tracks but if your leaving from Gambo there are signs at every fork in the road that say "Glenwood" and if you follow those you'll be fine. There's only one area that is rough that was cut by ATV riders I'm assuming. Wasn't that bad to get through though. I've heard that there were some bad washouts on this road during that event last year.

    This is the approximate route that goes further north than your route. You may be able to make out the trail on Google Earth. Eventually in intersect the new pole line and I would imagine it is even longer now since I've done it. Hope this helps.
