This award acknowledging global leadership in developing and promoting best practices in trail planning, connectivity, and collaboration.
Brazilian Trails Network are leading the way in the Americas. The Brazilian Network of Long Distance Trails is designed in a way that each National Long Track, like the 10,000 km Coastal Corridor (Oiapoque x Chuí), will be the result of the succession of a series of regional tracks, in which the ending point of one coincides with the trackhead of the next.
National long trails in the Brazilian Network are planned to connect landscapes in a nationwide scale. Regional long-distance trails can vary in length but basically should be of four sizes: (1) up to 28 hiking days; (2) up to 15 hiking days; (3) up to 7 hiking days; and (4) a single overnight trail. The distances, measured in days, are thought to fit most countries working holidays as well as weekends.
