Is there a hiker among us who doesn't fantasize about lacing up boots, loading up a pack, and hitting the trail for two weeks, a month, or even half a year? Long trails are the stuff of dreams. So we want to know: Which one is on your bucket list?

What if you could only eat one food on your entire hike? Which would you pick? Salty or sweet?
