Vote: America's Best Trail

We're asking you to help us pick the best trail in the U.S. for our 2010 Readers' Choice issue.

Got a favorite trail you've been bragging about to your cross-country hiking buddies? Here's your chance to have that trail enshrined as The Best Trail In America in BACKPACKER's 2010 Readers' Choice issue.

It's OK to get ruthless and recruit friends, enemies, and strangers to vote for your favorite trail (try bribery—it works). It'll show us your devotion to a particular track, hidden or famous.

So what's it going to be? The Wonderland Trail? The Appalachian? Pacific Crest? Continental Divide? Your backyard hike? Get voting in our online poll now, and make your voice(s) heard.

Virgin Falls in White County, TN. Three caves, depending on how you define them, and two waterfalls that exit caves and reenter the earth not much later.

Hey Ted!

Union Park Trail all the way to the cow camp.
Pick it up from CR 742 Taylor River Rd at Lottis Campground.
