Venture to the some of Monterey County's most popular and remote trails and views without leaving your desk!
Thanks to a recent partnership with the Google Trekker Loan Program you can now access panoramic vistas, trails and attractions throughout Monterey County on Google Maps' "Street View" feature. The Monterey County CVB teamed up with its neighbors to the north in Silicon Valley to utilize the Google Trekker device.
The Google Trekker is a backpack-style mounted camera with 15 separate lenses that captures 360 degree photos every 2.5 seconds. The transportable aspect of the camera allows for an unlimited experience that captures every angle of each location.
Guides from Big Sur Guides & Hiking were trained and strapped to the 40 pound camera to capture footage of unique locations not accessible by car like Nepenthe in Big Sur and Old Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey.
