Top Five Hiking Trails Of North America

Posted by on 8/24/2011 to Recreational

I have hiked dozens of trails across North America, and have heard countless stories and details about many others I have not experienced. Using other people's testimonies and my own knowledge I have put together a list of the top five "best" hiking trails in North America. This list is mostly pretty meaningless, since there are way more beautiful and fun trails that can not be accounted for, and everyone has their own opinions. But nonetheless, it's always fun to write and read other peoples' "Top Five"!
  1. Deep Creek - Hesperia, CA. - There is nothing I like better in nature than hot springs. Something about a warm pool of natural spring water is just so majestic. As a result, I couldn't help but to rank Deep Creek as number one. Among the best springs I have found and the trail hike is beautiful.
  2. Glacier Gorge - Estes Park, CO. - Talk about beautiful cascading waterfalls and wildly amazing landscapes. Not to mention the pure essence of being in the Rocky Mountains. Perfect place for fishing and taking scenic photos. Colorado has a lot to offer in terms of outdoors, camping, hiking etc... This site is a great source for more information about the Outdoors of Colorado.
  3. Boynton Canyon - Sedona, AZ. - A beautiful canyon view with large red sandstone formations and an interesting history with the Sinagua Indians. Once there you can feel the enchantment it brings.
  4. The Pinnacle - Hamburg, PA. - This trail is part of the Appalachian and is said to have the most beautiful view of valleys and wilderness from the top of a peak. I have done this trail many times and is close to home for me. I grew up only miles from this point, and have had the oppurtunity to appreciate the beauty countless times.
  5. Kauai: Kalalau Valley and The Na Pali Cliffs - Hanalei, HI. - As if Hawaii isn't amazing enough. This valley and cliff region stretches along the Pacific Ocean and looks just like what one might imagine paradise is.

To think I have been to Hawaii twice, and yet as an avid outdoorswomen failed to scope out this location despite hearing of it from several sources!.... Maybe next time :)

We know survival does not begin or end with the gear and tools you have at hand, but the knowledge you have in mind.
