The Pacific Northwest National Scenic Trail starts in Glacier National Park, passes through Northern Idaho and then ends in Olympic National Park in Washington.
While the trail has existed since the 1970s, Congress only approved legislation for the Pacific Northwest National Scenic Trail in 2009, adding it to the National Trails System. Other designated trails include the Pacific Crest Trail and the Appalachian Trail.
