The Lynn Woods Reservation is one of the largest municipal parks in the country. It is popular for hiking, bouldering, and mountain biking as well as other outdoor activities. It is owned by the City of Lynn and the Department of Public Works, Park Commission, and Lynn Water and Sewer Commission share jurisdiction and management of the Reservation.

Source Data / Maps

There are a number of maps available for the Lynn Woods Reservation. The official map is by the Friends of Lynn Woods at:

LynnWoodsBouldering.com has a map with specific information regarding bouldering:

My KMZ map is created (with permission) from the unofficial Dieselbikes revision 02 (Full) version of the trail map, dated 2009, at:
http://www.dieselbikes.com/trails/lyw/lyw_maps.htm
Disclaimer: The Dieselbikes version of the trail map (and hence, the KMZ map downloadable from this web page) is not an official map. This map of Lynn Woods Reservation has been revised to illustrate the location of trails and points of interest for mountain bikers. This map IS NOT AN OFFICIAL TRAIL MAP of Lynn Woods and should be used for informational purpose only.  Dieselbikes is working with the City of Lynn to make this map the legal version, but at this time IT IS NOT!

 

Screenshots

This KMZ map is set to Draw Order 25 so it will show 'beneath' your primary map and also beneath my KMZ map of the Breakheart Reservation on your Garmin KMZ-compatible GPS. Nothing important is obscured by having Breakheart over Lynn Woods on your GPS - you can have both KMZ files on your GPS at the same time without a problem. 

Note that due to the wide coverage area of this map, it is actually 6 tiles. Keep that in mind when placing this on your Garmin GPSr - even though this is one KMZ, the number of tiles is limited to 100 across all the KMZ files loaded on your GPS (or 500 tiles if you are lucky enough to have a Garmin Montana!).

The images below are all from a Garmin GPSMAP 78sc. The image on the left in both rows is with no other maps displayed. The image on the right in both rows has the Garmin 24K NE series TOPO maps displayed.

Version History

Version 1.01 (2012 July 8)
Corrected draw order mistake. I intended this map to have a draw order of 25, but I screwed up and the version uploaded on June 19 had a draw order of 32. It would still display on your GPSr, but it would not give the proper 'layering' effect with the Breakheart Reservation KMZ map as described above. The map now has a draw order of 25.

Version 1.00 (2012 June 19)
Initial release. See Source Data above for more information
