I found a website much better than google earth it had excellent and detailed shaded 3d for viewing online.
change a filter and the roads showed up it was excellent. My computer crashed and I lost the link! it had trails or trail in it's name as it also showed all documented trails and their mileage any info?

the website I was using was similar to google earth 3d but had all documented trails, streets and an awesome topo feature that shaded the contours. Hopefully I can find it again.
