Summer is almost here! With it comes the chance to enjoy all the outdoor activities we’ve been waiting all year to enjoy, like hiking and camping.
Hikers often face the dilemma of which hike to choose. Now, the Bing team is delivering a solution which helps you search for the perfect answer. It lets you explore hikes near you and then filter them by difficulty level, length, elevation gain, and more, so you can choose the right one.
If you’re having trouble making up your mind, you can also use the ‘Compare’ function (try compare trails near and in Yosemite national parks!) to make things easier. Just click the ‘Compare’ button and pick and choose trails of interests to view them side-by-side.
Bing makes it easy for you to find what you need whether you’re on your laptop the night before a trip or already on the go and browsing on your phone. Just search ‘trails near me’ on whatever device you happen to be on – and on mobile, Bing will offer not only the trail information but also links directly to live directions.
If you’re looking for something more involved than a day hike and are looking to spend a night or two somewhere, we’ve got you covered too. Bing helps you discover camping sites and RV parks in your area, along with all the details of each one, so you can plan your perfect camping getaway. You can also use Bing to explore information for camping options in our national parks.
Want to know how to get to our national parks? We now have flight status search box and parking options for all major airports in the US (try Fresno Yosemite International Airport, for example), with more coming soon.
We hope you enjoy these features, and we’re continuously adding more to make your travels and adventures easier. We’re excited to help you enjoy the great outdoors; please stay tuned for future updates!
