This KMZ map is set to Draw Order 32 so it will show 'beneath' the primary map on your Garmin KMZ-compatible GPS. It will also show beneath my KMZ map of Windsor State Forest if you have both of them loaded on your GPSr. Loading both KMZ maps will provide you with a seamless trail map of both properties on your GPSr.
Note that due to the wide coverage area of this map, it is actually 4 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 most Garmin GPSr models (500 if you have a Garmin Montana or Oregon 600 series).
The image on the left in each row below is from a Garmin GPSMAP 78sc with no other maps displayed. The image on the right in each row below is from the same device with the Garmin 24K NE series TOPO maps displayed.
I have posted this KMZ as freeware, so instead of paying me for it, send me a note if you found this file helpful!

Version 1.01 (7/7/2013)
Version 7 of Google Earth introduced a new 'feature' - when opening KMZ files, the view automatically 'tilts' to an oblique angle. By specifying the tilt angle (zero) in the KML file, this version of the Notchview KMZ map (1.01) prevents Google Earth from tilting the view. There were no other changes to the map - so if you don't mind the tilt view in Google Earth, or if you are not using this KMZ file in Google Earth, there is no reason to download this update.

NOTE: This is my calculation of the extents of the area(s) with publicly accessible trails on the KMZ map. This should be the area available for hiking or other recreation, but it will also include any portion of water bodies, marshes, swamps, etc. within the boundaries of the properties on the KMZ. It would also include inaccessible conservation land within the boundaries, such as a buffer zone of "Do not enter" land around a reservoir.
