A My Backpack account is your way to unlock all of the features Washington Trails Association has to offer that will make your hikes more enjoyable. Find future hikes easier, get personalized recommendations and more. And did we mention it's 100% free? (Why free? because we're a nonprofit serving hikers, and that's important to us.)
