Hi, I'm not very experienced with using CAD. I have been using Trimble sketchup for years to design things for personal use, but im working on a new project and sketchup is missing some of the features I require. If someone can direct me to a program that suites my needs it would be greatly appreciated.

I am trying to create a layout for some roadways and walking paths through my property. I'm not looking for accurate details of the roadways/paths, but just the gps locations of these paths. The reason I am wanting to do it this way is that the property is currently all forest and without a proper survey, I can't tell the proximity of one road to another. I would like to be able to create a design and then export gps coordinates from that design to a handheld gps so that I can see where I am in real world in relation to the layout. A couple of programs I have come across are Infraworks and microworks, but I feel like these may be a bit overkill for my needs. One more feature I would like to have is a basic 2d or 3d object creater. This would be handy for giving me a reference for things such as a shed
