The longest hiking trail I was able to find was the Pacific Crest Trail along the West Coast of the United States. The trail itself is 2,650 miles long and stretches from just North of the Canadian border in British Columbia all the way down to the tip of Southern California. The trail stretches along coastline and trough various mountain ranges, most notably the Sierra Nevadas. It was rumored to be in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s longest hiking trail, but I was unable to verify that. I’ve had a few friends hike portions of it and said it was incredible. Apparently, to do the whole thing, folks usually take about 3 to 6 months.
The world’s longest trail is the Great Wall of China with 5,500 miles of path. The second is the Continental Divide Trail which is 3,100 miles long. However, parts of the Continental Divide Trail are not maintained and may not be walkable. Third longest is also in America, the Appalachian Trail, which is also the world’s longest continuous foot path for hiking. It is 2,179 miles and runs from Georgia through Maine.
There is an even longer trail that is in the process of being built. The Trans Canada Trail is in process and when it is done it will extend across 22,000 km. So far 16,500 km are done and in use.
