The results are in! Here are our picks from the 230 photos submitted for the 2020 photo contest.
Since we began the NRT Photo Contest in 2003, we've seen a great variety of trails captured by photographers around the nation. We sponsor the annual Photo Contest in celebration of these great trails and to highlight the diversity of NRTs, from backcountry trails to urban greenways.
2020 is no exception. We received 230 new images of National Recreation Trails and the winners range from a water trail in Texas to a winter trail in Indiana. Accessible trails are represented, as are rail-trails, backcountry hiking and equestrian trails, and well-traveled commuter trails. As always, the photos show the love we have for these NRTs and how they improve our quality of life.
