by American Trails Staff

 

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.

There were 483 images of National Recreation Trails submitted and the winners range from the Badlands, to the mountains of Colorado, to a urban greenway in Pennsylvania. Backcountry trails are represented, as are rail-trails, 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.
