Mountain Bike Trails on Google Maps
The MTB Project is a great resource for mountain bike riders, to find and share mountain bike trails. The home page of the MTB Project includes a searchable Google Map that can help users find nearby trails.
Each trail also comes with a dedicated Google Map showing the route of the trail. The map is accompanied by an elevation chart, GPS route info, photos and detailed descriptions of the distance, surfaces and other important features. Each route includes an option to 'Take a Virtual Ride', which animates a fly-over route of the trail using the Google Earth browser plug-in.
