Does anyone know how I can get bike trail maps for my garmin? I use OSM to download the street maps (pre-compiled for garmin) and load those up on my memory card but I was hoping that there might be a source for the bike trails around hennepin county.

Any tips would be great.

There is a method to create your own, if you can find a PDF of an existing trail map. Basically you overlay it on Google Earth and save that overlay as a .kmz I think and then you can put it onto your Garmin directly. I did it with a few state parks, but I haven't tried to do it in a while so my skills may be rusty... I think I found the tutorial on the main gc.com forums... maybe?
