Google Trekkers Hit the Trails in OC Parks

Starting in August, hikers will be collecting imagery of Orange County trails using the Google Street View Trekker, a wearable backpack with a camera system on top. The Trekker automatically gathers images as it goes. Later the imagery will be  stitched together to create the 360-degree panoramas you see today in Google Maps.

OC Parks is partnering with Google through the Google Trekker loan program to collect imagery of our beautiful trails. OC Parks staff members and volunteers will be hiking numerous trails in County wilderness and regional parks between August and November while wearing the Google Trekker backpack.

We look forward to publishing this panoramic imagery online for everyone to explore.
