Adventure Gives Us The Top Trails

To celebrate National Trail Day, which took place over the weekend, National Geographic Adventure has updated their website with a list of their 16 Best Trails.

The trails a are broken down into categories and displayed in a slick fashion using Flash. For instance, under “Weekend All-Stars” you’ll find The Art Loeb Trail in North Carolina as well as the Northern Loop Trail near Mt. Rainier. Other categories include “City Wilds” with top trails in or very near to an urban area, “Classics” which is just what it sounds like, and includes the John Muir Trail. Finally, you have the National Parks, which highlights the best trails in the park system, with the likes of Yosemite, Yellowstone, and the Grand Canyon taking these honors.

The page also has some other cool articles for hikers, such as an insider’s guide to the great parks, the list of best national parks for 2007, and even a nice gear guide .

National Trail Day may be over, but that doesn’t mean we still can’t use these resources. After all, it’s not even officially summer yet. So get out there and hit the trail.
