Google Trekking

Eugene, Cascades & Coast 

Google Trekker Hiking by Thomas MoserJoin Travel Lane County's staff as they trek across the Eugene, Cascades & Coast region on the "Google Trekker" project. Similar to Google's "street view," this technology makes pedestrian trails accessible to viewers around the world.

The Google Trekker is a backpack system crowned by rotating cameras capturing 360-degree views. The images are stitched together creating a visually immersive experience.


Google Trekker on BoatMapping the terrain with a "trail view" of the region's many natural wonders required endurance and ingenuity. Watch our staff carry the camera to the top of towering sand dunes, across log bridges and to the foot of roaring waterfalls. When backpacking wasn't an option, they strapped the Google Trekker camera to boats, horses and bicycles - just so that you could experience the unique beauty found here in Oregon.
