Lycian Way - Turkey

Posted by Harvey Griggs on 30 April 2013 in English (English)

Hello there, I am trying to find and download onto a GPS as many GPS points as I can for the Lycian Way walk from Ovacik to Hiscandir... Does anyone know if this is possible on OpenStreetMap? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks, Harvey

Hello and welcome to OpenStreet Map,

You can easily download GPS traces with JOSM map editor.

Googling for "download osm gpx traces"
http://www.google.com/search?q=download+osm+gpx+traces&ie=UTF-8
gives lots more help.

Regards Bernard

Many parts of the Lycian Way are mapped between Fethiye and Antalya, see http://www.openstreetmap.org/?relation=51855 (might be a bit slow to load) for an idea of what is there.

Relations aren't readily downloadable as a GPS track/trail although it is possible.

If you are using a Garmin device there are many ready made files containing walking routes, see http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OSM_Map_On_Garmin/Download. Extremecarver offers downloads specifically made for walkers and mountain bikers at Openmtbmap, with useful optional contours as well.

You can take the track Form this german guidebook:

or use the data from OSM:

This is a very good site to download routes from OSM as gpx-file: http://hiking.waymarkedtrails.org/de/?zoom=6&lat=39.72327&lon=34.95278

Unfortunately there seem to be very sparsely informations about the Lycian Way in OSM. Hope you can fix this after you had a walk there. :)

Non-OSM gpx routes for the Lycian Way you can find here: http://www.gpsies.com
Searching for Lycian Way gives 22 hits.

Wishing you a nice journey,
