I would love to make maps of all the dirt roads in western MD and southern PA. I have a lot of them mapped out the old school way... paper map and highlighter, but I would love to make them digital and share them on the forum... so, how do you do it in google maps? Thanks!
Go to google maps, login with your account (or create one), click on "My Places" (top of the left col), then "Maps", and "Create Map".
In the map view there should be three icons near the top: Hand tool, place mark tool, and path tool. Click and hold on the path tool to select "Draw a line along roads". Save as public and share.
