Your Next Hike: WTA's Newest Website Feature Makes Personalized Suggestions

Posted by Loren Drummond at Jun 22, 2021 03:01 PM |

Everyone experiences trails differently, which is why WTA's newest website feature suggests hikes just for you.

Today, WTA released a new feature on wta.org that makes personalized suggestions of hikes you might be interested in adding to your hiking wish list. It is designed to educate, spark curiosity and shift focus from a small number of often-recommended trails to the many trails that Washington has to offer.

Developed with the help of volunteers, the feature looks at the existing hikes you have saved in your My Backpack account and any trip reports you've filed, and suggests other trails to try across the state. It draws on WTA's decades of local trail knowledge and the latest data science to make suggestions that help hikers and trails.

To access the new feature, you need to create a My Backpack account on wta.org. Log in via wta.org (it's not on our mobile app yet) and find it on your My Hikes page.
