No doubt you’re familiar with Street View, the Google Maps technology that lets you travel along city streets via your computer or smartphone screen.
Now, for those looking to get off the pavement, there’s Trail View, a new program that lets you “walk” the trails of three national parks without taking a step.
Created by granola bar company Nature Valley, a longtime parks supporter, the virtual experience covers more than 300 miles of trails in the Grand Canyon, Great Smoky Mountains and Yellowstone national parks. Pick a trail, hit Autoplay and the surrounding scene shifts as you move down the trail. Users can also pan 360 degrees at any point by clicking and dragging the cursor.
