You'll be able to effortlessly follow several routes across the great American countryside and for those too lazy to even click the forward arrow, there's an autoplay mode.

Very cool. I hope to do a bunch of panos and point-to-point time-lapse footage of my hike this year. It won't be this robust, but I still hope it will be cool.

I can imagine a day when all trails will be covered like this -- Google Earth 3.0 (The Complete Edition)! I wonder if this will inspire more to hike, or make them content to stay at home? TBD.
