Views of the solar eclipse from the trails on August 21

On August 21, 2017, hundreds of thousands of people converged on America’s public lands, including its scenic and historic trails, to witness a total solar eclipse. It was the first time in 99 years that an eclipse swept from coast to coast over the U.S.

Featured here are photos submitted by our partners along the Oregon Trail, Appalachian Trail, Rich Guadagno Memorial National Recreation Tral, California National Historic Trail, and National Historic Trails Center in Casper, Wyoming.
