Google Map Links For Trail of Death

Rich Meyers, Millersburg, Indiana, made Google-maps for the Trail of Death. He used campfires for the overnight camps, an arrow and a star for Trail of Death marker located not at an overnight camp, a hiker for the side trips, and a slash for the directions. Google would not let Rich put in the street names. It drew up the directions, so Rich had to carefully enter each turn of the route. Therefore, some of the street names are different from what we already had on our website. Example: 200S is now West CR 200 S. However, you can click and bring up the website pictures and directions.

Clicking on any of these will bring up that states Google-map.

Click here to get four choices: Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas.

Here are directions for using the Google-maps:

  1. To find any point or route from the list on the left, click on it, and the map will center on that, and a “balloon” will pop up to give you some information, including links to PTDA web pages. Clicking on any Route will bring up driving directions that match the route depicted on the map.
  2. You can scroll the map up or down or left or right with the arrows in the circle around the hand, upper left corner of the map. You can zoom in or out using the zoom bar just below that. You can add a satellite-photo underlay under the map by choosing that option in the upper right corner of the map.
  3. In the “balloons” that pop up on the map when you click on a site in the left column there are links (in blue) to pages of information about the sites, and from the first and last sites in each state you can link to the adjoining maps.
  4. Illinois and Missouri are broken into two “pages” by Google-maps. This means that when you first get to the state, you will see displayed the first 3/4 of the state route. Go to the bottom of the left-hand column and click to the second page to see the rest.
  5. If you click the “print” option above the map, you should get the map you are currently looking at, with driving directions for the “page” of the state you are on -- this will be between two and six pages printed.
