Hiking has been increasing in popularity over the past few years with millions of Americans venturing into the great outdoors. People enjoy hiking because it’s a great way to explore nature’s beauty without breaking the bank. Here are some of our favorite areas to hike around and some specific trails that are worth a visit.

Grand Canyon National Park

Grand Canyon National Park offers some of the most incredible views in the country. Hikers will witness the Park’s spectacular sights featuring the Grand Canyon itself. Downhill trails that head into the canyon are challenging for beginners, especially given the desert conditions. It’s absolutely essential that hikers bring plenty of water for their entire journey. Once you venture to the bottom of the canyon, save some energy to explore your way back to the top. Rim Trail, one of the most popular walking tours, is a 15-mile hike, so plan accordingly.

Columbia River Gorge

Hiking is one of the best ways to explore the gorgeously green Pacific Northwest Region. A hike through the Columbia River Gorge in Washing and Oregon will treat adventurers to a view of several waterfalls, including Oregon’s Multnomah Falls.

The Great Smoky Mountains

The Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee and North Carolina are a great place for hikers to explore year-round. Although not as rugged as the Rockies, but there are over 800 miles of trails that wander through these mountains. Hidden within the forests of the Great Smoky Mountains are trickling streams, gushing waterfalls and more natural beauty than you can imagine.

Precipice Trail, Maine

Precipice Trail in Acadia National Park offers breathtaking views of the Atlantic ocean. This hike is less than two miles, but it’s one of Maine’s most popular and most challenging trails. The difficulty of the Precipice Trail comes from its steep ascent and narrow ledges before rewarding hikers with incredible views.

Angel’s Landing, Utah

Utah’s Angel’s Landing in Zion National Park offers jaw-dropping views of the surrounding red rock formations. The round-trip to Angel’s Landing is just under five miles long. Experts recommend bringing extra water for this hike and being aware of the altitude changes. Angel’s landing isn’t as tall as other hikes, but it starts from an already high altitude and goes up from there.

Kalalau Trail, Hawaii

Your island visit to Hawaii isn’t complete without a hike on the Kalalau Trail. This 11-mile hike follows the Napali Coast on Kauai island and treats adventurers to gorgeous views. The trial’s red dirt pops among the tropical green leaves and Pacific shoreline. Wild fruit trees are an added bonus along this hike. The guavas, mangos and java plums are free for hikers to enjoy.
