Hikers who walk an entire section of the trail or the whole trail from end-to-end may wish to purchase a chevron or badge to reflect the accomplishment. To purchase a section chevron or an end-to-end badge, hikers are to present or forward a log of their hikes to the GVTA hike director. The GVTA hike director or designate validates the log and provides the hiker, or hike leader if the log is for a group of hikers, with the necessary authentication to purchase the badge or chevron. Once authorization is received, the badge or chevron can be purchased on Store.
Logs can be completed using a hiking log.
