6 Best Hikes In The USA

by WILLIT Sports on May 17, 2024

The United States is a pretty diverse and vast country to visit. From desert floor to ancient forests, sweeping vistas to plunging gorges, there’s no shortage of mind-blowing hiking destinations across the US. We’ve rounded up the best hikes in the US, locations from coast to coast, for all levels and abilities. Best of all, it doesn’t matter if you’re an avid hiker, a pro or just fancy a little stroll.

 

1. Yosemite National Park

From paved strolls to multi-day high-country expeditions, hiking in Yosemite National Park doesn’t disappoint. The moment you enter the valley, the 3,000’ granite walls dominate the skyline. Hiking terrain ranges from open meadows, granite peaks, deciduous and conifer forests, and everything in between. Leading you to the tallest waterfall in the country, not only is this is one of the best hikes in America, but this beautiful trail is the best way to see Yosemite Valley. When you reach the falls, you will be in awe of its size and beauty.

2. Appalachian Trail

One of the best hikes in the USA has to be the Burroughs Appalachian Trail in National Park. It runs 2,190 miles along the spine of the Appalachian Mountains, from Georgia to the middle of Maine. The AT spends the majority of time in deciduous forest, with terrain difficulty varying from region to region. It is easily accessible along the majority of the east coast. Sections and day hike options abound along its entire length, and each year thousands of hikers attempt a thru-hike. 

3. South Rim Trail

This stunning 13-km trail in Big Bend National Park is a challenging climb to the highest ridge. However, the trail is largely level, is by far the most well-known hike in the park. This hike offers breath-taking views of the Grand Canyon and Colorado River. From the highest ridge, you can gaze upon mountains that lead all the way to Mexico. We recommend visiting during the spring as the months are cooler and there are often less crowds, so completing the route is far more enjoyable, this is arguably one of the best hikes in the United States.

4. Lost Coast Trail

Outside Alaska, this coastline is the largest undeveloped coastline in the country. The trail can be found in the King range National Conservation Area in Northern California and it runs from Northern Mendicino to Humboldt County and along it are some of the most rugged yet stunning natural features. Named the lost coast trail as twice per day stretches of the route disappear beneath the oceans high tide. This unique, lost world of forests and beaches is home to an unforgettable adventure waiting to happen.

5. The Pacific Crest Trail

Starting in the small town of Campo on the US-Mexico border, the trail meanders 4,265 kilometres through California, Oregon, and Washington before arriving at the US-Canada border in the northern terminus. This national scenic trail uncovers the splendours of the desert, unfolds over Sierra Nevada's glaciated summits, and offers breath-taking views of the Cascade Range's volcanic peaks.

6. Big Sur

Get the most out of the area by choosing a few hikes of varying lengths and types — some trails like the McWay Waterfall Trail will take less than a mile to get to a waterfall, while others like the Limekiln Trails will have you winding on level paths through towering redwood forests. Stone Ridge Trail in the Ventana Wilderness is an excellent loop trail that gives you a taste of Big Sur’s many ecosystems.
