Santa Monica Mountain trailheads now on Google Maps

Trailheadmap

It took her several days, but Liz has just finished off her map of the trailheads in the Santa Monica mountains. There’s descriptions for each of the locations, describing the trails they lead to, how much parking there is, nearby campsites, which agency owns the land and if bikes or horses are allowed. This was originally going to be just so she could easily link to the meeting points for trailwork from the SMMTC website, but it’s turned into a great resource for anyone who’s interested in getting out into the mountains.

I’m really proud of what she’s accomplished, and it demonstrates how Google’s map-building application opens the door to anyone building rich maps, in a way that just wasn’t possible before. Maybe this will help a few more people discover the beautiful wilderness we have on our doorstep here in LA.
