It's hard not to like Google and this are exactly the things that make it great and ahead of the competitors. If you already took a dive into the beautiful coral reefs of the Ocean  it's now time to explore the magnificent Grand Canyon in the state of Arizona in the United States.

The Google street view maps cover more than 75 miles of trails and surrounding roads. You can take a hike down the narrow and exposed paths like the famous Bright Angel trail, walk over the Black Bridge and feast your eyes on the mighty Colorado River all thanks to the 360 degree panoramic imagery.

Your virtual hike can continue to the steep inclines of the South Kaibab Trail to enjoy the spectacular views of the canyon and jump to the nearby Meteor Crater measuring about 4,000 ft  (1,200 m) in diameter, 570 ft (170 m) in depth created about 50,000 years ago.

All the images you are witnessing were taken by the Google's own 360 degree camera the hikers were carrying  on their backs and taking pictures as they were waking down this amazing and exposed trails and paths.

Google Street view really is a great way to visit all the beautiful faraway places without the need to spend a dime and burden on the environment by using the means of transportation to get there. You can watch the promo video bellow or go straight to the Google Maps Grand Canyon National Park. Enjoy your hike!
