    Pretty cool. Here's another excellent AT/ Google Maps combo from the excellent Appalachian Trail Database. That one maps the towns/POs and major landmarks as well as the shelters, and the pop-up balloons are a bit more informative.

    I can't believe all the work that went into both of those maps. Pretty remarkable.

    Default Another Google Map

    Here's another google map that automatically adjusts trail detail and visible shelters as the user zooms in and out. Very useful for finding road crossings.

    Wow, that's very nice! Love the overlay options between topo/terrain/etc. Any idea what data defines the path of the trail (e.g. GPS coordinates from an actual hike)?

    Default GPS Coords

    I found GPS coordinates on various other websites. I just put all the coordinates together and put them in the right order. Let me know if you think of any other features that would be useful.

    Wow you did that. Do you think I could get a copy of the kmz file from you?
