Wonderland Trail

The Wonderland Trail in North America is estimated to be 93 miles (150 kilometers) long, and takes 7 days* to complete when hiking at an average of 15 miles (25 kilometers) per day.

It is a loop trail, which means that to do a complete thru hike of the trail, you will start and end your hike at the same place.

Because the Wonderland Trail is a loop trail, a thruhiker can start their hike at any point along the trail and complete a successful thruhike. One recommended starting point is Longmire Trailhead in Packwood, Washington, United States.

A good day of the year to start this hike from the Longmire Trailhead is August 1.

The Washington Trails Association takes on the task of maintaining, improving, and advocating for the Wonderland Trail as its trail association.
