Lately I have been exploring hiking trails in my area based on web searches. Going to a website and reading about a trail often doesn’t provide the information to know if a trail is worth visiting. Plus hiking trails often have horrible map guides.
Some hiking trails have been huge disappointments while others are now my favorites.
Google has a new video project for the Grand Canyon which is a perfect solution.
They use a 40 lb camera backpack to record a hiker’s experience to bring into map street view. View the video below to see their new project.
No camera can capture the breathtaking experience of hiking the Grand Canyon but a preview of hiking the trails makes you want to go.
