How do I add photos to a trail?

The AllTrails community appreciates your photo submissions to the trail photo galleries. Photos of the trail terrain, landscape, and views are helpful to give users an idea of what to expect on the trail. 

Group shots, selfies, personal photos, and inappropriate content may be removed.
