Mt Tamalpais at EveryTrail: Share and Plan your Trips

While researching the latest on Google Maps' rollout of its StreetView functionality to a limited number of hiking and biking trails this summer, I stumbled across a cool website called EveryTrail. This comprehensive hiking, trekking, and biking resource allows you to view tens of thousands of user-submitted trail guides that plot point-to-point information on an interactive map, along with user photos and other related information about the trail. Need details about climbing Yellowstone's popular Mount Washburn? Click here. Dreaming of ticking the Grand Canyon's Bright Angel Trail off your list? Click here. Membership is free, plus you can export raw data into GPX or KML format for use in mobile maps or in Google Earth. Features in the pipeline will also include iPhone and GPS device downloads, making it even easier to hit the trail!

Love to hike? Then you'll love the revamped Trail Finder tool on Away.com's sister site, GORP.com. Browse thousands of hiking trails around North America, plus easily edit and add details through its new user wiki.
