Since 2015, our friends at REI have been closing their doors on Black Friday to encourage everyone to celebrate nature on the day and to spend more time outdoors every day. And each year since, we’re proud to have been a part of this growing movement by inviting you to hit the trails with us.

Leading up to Black Friday 2019, we asked you to get out on a trail and share your experience for a chance to win trail gear. Here are this year's winning posts.
