Posted In: Uncategorized revamps site, tackles AT

preview_ancarrows_listOur good friends at have done it again. They’ve entirely revamped their site, which I featured last year in a Times-Dispatch column. The functionality is significantly upgraded on the new site, and, most importantly, they continue to add new trails, boat put-ins (like Ancarrow’s Landing to the right) and water ways to the list. How ambitious are the guys from They’ve got a hiker on the Appalachian Trail right now with a system of backpack-mounted GoPro cameras. The goal is to photograph and have a trail tour available for the entire path in a few months. Needless to say, this has never been done. Terrain360 developer Ryan Abrahamsen told me he expects the first 100 miles of the AT to be up soon. Google may have Trekker, but nobody’s doing what these local guys are attempting. Check it out.

About Andy Thompson

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
