America's Best Long Trails


by Richard White II February 07, 2019

Plan your next big hike with this map of America's most-loved long trails.

Creating a thru-hike-worthy trail ranks as one of the hardest challenges in the outdoors. It takes decades to wrangle government agencies, assemble trail crews, raise money, and establish an organization that will maintain the trail. It’s a wonder we have any long trails at all. Long trails are everywhere.  Use the map below to find one near you.  Everyone knows about the Triple Crown—the Appalachian Trail, Pacific Crest Trail, and Continental Divide Trail— and dozens more, spanning tens of thousands of miles. Whether you want to hike for, a weekend, a week, or several months, start your search here.  These hikes are great for groups of young adventures to do in sections.
