Merrell Hiking Contest "Find Your FKT"

What’s Your Favorite Hiking Trail? Vote to Win

We’re giving away $10,000 to benefit iconic hiking trails around the U.S. Vote for your favorite trail, and you too could win big!

Merrell Hiking Contest "Find Your FKT"

GearJunkie teamed up with Merrell to celebrate the FKT – and we need your help. We’re launching a three-month project to find your favorite hiking trail and distribute $10,000 to support these epic trails:

  • Continental Divide Trail
  • Appalachian Trail
  • Ice Age Trail
  • Long Trail
  • Mountains-to-Sea Trail
  • North Country Trail
  • Ozark Highlands Trail
  • Pacific Crest Trail
  • Superior Hiking Trail

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

GearJunkie and Merrell will award $5,000 to the top vote-getter and distribute the remaining $5,000 to the other eight trails’ supporting organizations.

But this isn’t just a contest for the trails – you can win, too! 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! We’re also handing out 12 pairs of Merrell MQM Flex shoes.

Bonus: Upload a photo from the trail and receive an extra entry! 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.
