Do you have pics from your summer hiking adventures? +OarsRafting wants to see them! Share your photos, using #MyTrailIsCalling, for a chance to win a 5-day hiking trip to Grand Canyon National Park!
If you’re like us, you have a list of hikes you want to do someday — Scale Yosemite’s Half Dome, hike the Angels Landing Trail in Zion, go rim-to-rim in the Grand Canyon, or follow the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. But sometimes, the trail down the street or just out of town is all you need to get that hiking buzz.
