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.
