There is no way to replace hiking Yellowstone National Park in person. You should absolutely do that at some point in your life. But, thanks to modern technology, you can virtual hike many Yellowstone trails while you wait for the opportunity to do it for real.

Thanks to the same tech that has been used to do street views on Google Maps, Nature Valley Trail View has dozens of Yellowstone trails that you can hike from the comfort of your laptop or tablet.

You can ride along on a virtual trip through the Mount Washburn Trail, Fountain Paint Pots, Avalanche Peak Trail, Mystic Falls and many more.

This tech is awesome, but there truly is no replacement to going to Yellowstone in real life. My family has this at the top of our summer plans right now.
