Agreed: we need gpx of route

I've found a 2014 RideWithGPS file by someone who did the trail back then but I think there have been significant changes since then. Anyone know of .gpx or other standard downloadable digital versions of the Ohio to Erie Trail?

Thanks, John P.
I don't have a current gpx file and I share your frustration, since I'm planning to ride the entire route, solo, this summer, and like you, all I can find are older gpx files that include whatever detours the file uploader might have taken. I'll have the current paper maps as backup, but I hate fiddling with maps. Also, the route might have changed a bit since last printing. I suspect that various rail trail organizations choose not to offer gpx downloads since they need money raised by selling paper maps and paper trail books, which include paid advertisements. The paper trail book and paper map paradigm must change to address tech-oriented riders' needs.
