These treks are not listed in any particular order, so don’t expect it to end with a drumroll, fireworks, and the announcement of the definitive number one hike. The article notes that with the very diverse terrain, climates, and topography found in the States, that it’s not easy to boil it down to just ten hikes, but they gave it their best shot and came up with a very good list.
There are a few pleasant surprises to be found amongst the classic hikes on the list as well. For example, I was happy to see that Glacier Gorge in Estes Park, Colorado got a mention. TrailsTV calls it the most beautiful location in Rocky Mountain National Park, and I’m inclined to agree. Breakneck Ridge Trail in New York also makes the cut, and although I’ve never hiked it, I hear good things.
Another very good list, and a great resource for the coming Fall. When the leaves start to change, it’ll be a perfect time to hit the trail and take in the autumn colors.
