Trail That Leads to the Mountains

Posted on Aug 22, 2008 under Random | No Comment

I found this old blog post about how Google Maps has contour lines when you are in terrain mode. Looking at this view gives you an idea of all the hills that you would encounter during a run. So I decided to take a look at the route we used to take when running on the trail and see if there were any significant hills that we had to run during that route..

A screenshot of the running trail in terrain mode in Google Maps.

For the most part, it’s pretty flat, but what I think is cool is how the end of the trail is the base of the mountain, where some trail runners may say that is where a real run begins. Too bad we never had a chance to run up the mountain, I’m sure it would have been quite a run.
