To make it even more informative, Google will show other peoples reviews of parks and trails, along with other useful details, such as where to find the nearest public bathroom.
Since national parks are huge and are often confusing, Google will start highlighting park entrances later this month, as well, with Maps pointing you right to the trailhead.
Downloadable maps will also available later this month.
These features will initially roll out for national parks in the US, but Google plans to make Maps more useful to hikers around the world and will add more detailed information for national parks in other countries later this month.
Finally, Google will make it possible to download offline maps for parks so that you dont have to worry about not being able to find your way if you suddenly lose access to the internet.
