Five fantastic places to hike in the USA

Hiking in the USASummer is almost here so it’s time to get out into the great outdoors. There’s nothing like a good hike to make the most of beautiful weather and greatscenery, so here’s a few of the top places in the USA for those whose boots were made for walking.

Utah: Zion National Park – Zion National Park is a hiker’s paradise.  The park is very well organized and there’s a shuttle system that passes many of the trailheads making a variety of walks and hikes very accessible.

Montana: Glacier National Park – bordering Alberta and British Columbia, Glacier National Park offers some amazing natural settings from rugged mountains, to pristine lakes and huge forest.  Hiking in Glacier NP offers adventurers the chance to get away from the crowds.

California: Yosemite National Park – This massive park really does have it all: waterfalls, lakes, forest, mountains and meadows.  There are plenty of options with over 800 miles of trails from easy paved walks to challenging and remote trails.

Arizona: Grand Canyon National Park – We could hardly not mention the Grand Canyon.  Most tourists come to the Grand Canyon and don’t make it past the rim.  While the view from here is certainly spectacular, it’s even more incredible to hike to see the Canyon from the bottom. You’ll need to plan this one well in advance.

East Coast: The Appalachian Trail – synonymous with the best in hiking, this epic trail stretches over 2100 miles and passes through 14 states, from Georgia to Maine, offering some of the best and most varied trails in the USA.
