Enter the National Landscape Conservation System Hikes Contest
The National Landscape Conservation System is the West’s best-kept secret. It holds the hidden treasures of the American West: 26 million acres of the Bureau of Land Management’s incomparable lands and waters, and miles of remote, rugged trails. It’s a network of the last places where you can experience the history and wild beauty of the American West.

Ironwood Forest National Monument and Las Cienegas National Conservation Area are local examples of great places to hike on Conservation System lands.

Share photos, details and a story about a special hike you’ve taken within the National Landscape Conservation System. Those of you who submit the 12 best hikes get a chance to win free gear and a chance to share your story nationally. Best yet, all of BLM’s great hikes will benefit from the increased attention this contest brings to the best hiking in the west. To enter the contest, go to www.americanhiking.org.
