Great Parks has teamed up with Google to help map more than 70 miles of trail in Hamilton County.

Have you ever wanted to check out a trail before starting a hike? Well, now you can "check before you trek" with Google Maps -- the 360-degree mapping just launched.

A team of 37 who each wore the Google Street View Trekker utility backpack -- an apparatus that uses the same technology as Google Street View cars -- has gathered 200 miles worth of trail images.

The pictures were collected in 16 parks and provide a real view of Great Parks' 78-mile network of trails. Just go to Google Maps, find your park and drag or drop the streetview icon that looks like a person over the area you want to see.
