A long trail through the Intermountain West (AZ, UT, ID, WY, MT) first designed in the 1990s. It is multi-use, with several sections open to biking and motorized vehicles (often with alternative motorized and non-motorized routes). It is mostly mountainous forest, but also includes sections of desert and some connections through towns and rural valleys. Connects to the Continental Divide Trail (CDT) in the north, and the Arizona Trail (AT) in the south. The Arizona segment of the GWT has largely been forgotten since the AT was created.
