Here at GJ, we test a lot of gear. We are fortunate to test cutting-edge new products. Now, we want to give you the chance to win some gear too.

More on the contest: GearJunkie teamed up with Merrell to celebrate hiking and fastest known times – and we need your help. We’re launching a promotion to find your favorite hiking trail and distribute $10,000 to support these epic trails.

Merrell Hiking and Shoe Giveaway Trails

Maybe you think one is the most beautiful or the most physically challenging. For any reason you like, we want to learn which hiking trail is your favorite. Vote here!

More on the hiking trip: Enter your email (up to once per day) for a shot at the grand prize: a weekend hiking getaway for you, a friend, and a Merrell ambassador or guide at any one of the contest’s nine iconic trails – all expenses paid!

More on the shoes: We’re also handing out 12 pairs of Merrell MQM Flex shoes. Merrell’s latest footwear “merges and blurs the lines” for what a trail (or off-trail) shoe should look like. Despite its look, this is not a pure trail-running shoe. The MQM FLEX line was built to be a true hybrid for hiking, scrambling, and climbing. but it’s also fine for bolting into a sprint.

How to get bonus entries: Upload a photo from the trail and receive one extra entry per day! So get out there, hike, and upload a photo from the trail to our microsite here. You can vote and upload a photo once per day to increase your odds of winning.
