Most hikers, trekkers, and backpackers have a particular trail that sticks out to them as being their favorite for one reason or another. Sometimes it’s the scenery or the wildlife they encounter along the way. Perhaps it’s the challenge or the solitude it provides. No matter what reason your favorite trail keeps you coming back, National Geographic Adventure wants to know about it.
The editors over at Adventure are compiling a list of their reader’s favorite trails for a feature on “America’s Best Hikes” which will be the cover story for the April issue that hits newsstands on March 18th. For details on how to nominate your favorite trail click here.
In a nutshell, you’ll need to e-mail the editors to let them know the name of your trail, where it’s located, how long it is, and why it should be included on their list. From there you’ll want to tell them how best to approach the trail. Which season is ideal? Where is the best campsite? The best scenic overlook? And so on. You’re also asked to include a photo from the trail if you have one, as well as your contact information including your full name, mailing address and phone number so they can make you wildly famous when your selection makes the list.
This is your chance to contribute to Adventure and tip them off to some of the best hidden gems in hiking. I’m sure the list will have some great suggestions, and personally I can’t wait to see the what makes the final cut. So speak up and let us all know where America’s Best Hikes are located. Don’t wait too long however, as you only have two weeks to submit your entry however, as the April issue goes to press in just two weeks!
