Summer Gear Giveaway!

What Do I Win?

For this year's MyHikes Summer Gear Giveaway, 2 hikers will win a Petzl headlamp set:

Sawyer Mini Water Filter

When Can I participate?

Anytime between June 17th starting at 12AM EST through July 1st ending at 11:59PM EST.

When Will The Drawing Happen?

2 winners will be chosen on July 3rd by a random drawing based on the total entries by all contestants. Both winners will be contacted. If a winner does not respond via email or Instagram DM within 48-hours, we will draw again to find another winner.

How To Participate

You are entered once each time you:

  1. Find a trail on MyHikes, hike it and add a Trip Report to the site (requires a MyHikes account). Your trip report must include notes about the hike. Trip Reports without notes will not be counted toward the drawing.
  2. Tag @myhikes_org and include #myhikes_org in an Instagram post after exploring a trail from the site.
    Note: For private Instagram accounts, please email your post screenshots (with @myhikes_org tagged) to dave@myhikes.org by July 1st at 11:59PM EST because Instagram does not notify us when a private post is made.


  • Hike a trail found on the site and add a Trip Report with notes to that trail. [ONE ENTRY]
  • Make an Instagram post about the first hike - tagging @myhikes_org and adding #myhikes_org to your post. [ONE ENTRY]
  • Hike 4 separate trails found on MyHikes and add 4 separate Trip Reports with notes. [FOUR ENTRIES]
Total Entries: 6

Why Give Away Gear?

At MyHikes we believe that without hikers advocating and sharing the site, we would cease to exist, so this is one way we can give back to the hiking and backpacking community. We also cannot thank Petzl enough for their support and generosity in donating this gear for our giveaway!
