The 2003 contest for photos of America's great trails!
American Trails is sponsoring a contest for photographs of National Recreation Trails across the country. To view the 138 entries, visit the Photo Contest Galleries: Album #1 -- Album #2 -- Album #3 -- Album#4 -- Album#5 -- Album#6 -- Album #7.
We will provide awards in several categories and show off entries on the NRT Web site. The goal is to highlight the diversity of the NRTs and to make more Americans familiar with these great trails. We're looking for good photos of trail users as well as features of interest, signs, special facilities, management issues, construction, and volunteers. We also want to see entries that cover the many types of National Recreation Trails: greenways, backcountry hiking trails, water trails, motorized trails, rail trails, interpretive trails, historic routes, urban trails, and bicycling and horseback riding trails.
Photos of any designated National Recreation Trail are eligible
