Top US Hiking Destinations
Travel Tip: 5 US Hiking Destinations – as part of the expert series by GeoBeats.
My top five hiking destinations in the US: there are so many places to hike in the United States; I would start with the best, which is Yellowstone National Park. It’s an American icon, there’s so much wildlife there, and so many opportunities to see nature. Second, I would say the Grand Teton National Park, which is right by Yellowstone; also a great place to see buffalo and bears and other wildlife. I would recommend as my third spot Fire Island; there is actually camping there, even though it’s somewhat of a luxury destination, so that’s a great way to see nature and also get a taste of the local boutiques. Fourth, I would say Nickerson State Park in Cape Cod, another budget way to experience a traditional getaway destination; great hiking and biking in that area. And finally, I would say the ski resorts of Utah; for example, Alta Resort in the summer has great hiking trails. You can see moose, and you can really get up close with the mountains and nature.
Thanks for your recommendations. How can the John Muir Trail not be in the top five hiking destinations in the US?
