Did you know Google Maps has several additional tools besides the basic map? The Distance Measurement Tool allows you to pick points on a map and it will total the feet, miles, or meters between two or more points. I recently used this to see how far I was walking.
Of course this isn’t super accurate as elevation changes and doesn’t follow the road perfect, but will give you a general idea. Alternatively, you could use Google Earth for more options.
