American Trails sponsors an annual contest for photographs of National Recreation Trails across the country. 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 special facilities, art on the trails, management issues, construction, and volunteers.

In celebration of these great trails we will be presenting awards in several categories to highlight the diversity of NRTs, from backcountry trails to urban greenways.


AWARD CATEGORIES: We will give awards in the following categories. Entries will be considered for all relevant categories.
