USA Hikes And Trails
Salt Lake City, Utah
Salt Lake City has plenty to see and offers great hiking trails. Salt Lake City features The 4-mile Bell Canyon to First Waterfall Trail which routes you beautiful countryside including a stunning waterfall and 2 huge reservoirs. For more experienced hikers the Mill Fork Trail is a 7 mile trail which leads up to Deseret Peak. This trail takes you up to a summit 11,031ft high, offering the most amazing views of the area.
Fort Collins, Colorado
Colorado has a great variety of hiking trails and is enormously popular for casual and veteran hikers. The Horsetooth Rock Trail offers a 6.2 mile hike which includes views of amazing rock formations resembling what looks like a giant horse’s set of teeth! Naturally, the fall nearby are called the Horsetooth Falls.
Blacksburg, Virginia is home to the 5-mile Cascades National Recreation Trail where you will find a wonderful 66ft waterfall. You may find another trail, the 7.9 mile Mcafee’s Knob pretty demanding. If so, skip that and do the 4.6 mile Dragon Tooth Train instead: it offers wonderful panoramic views once you reach the top.
Sedona’s hiking trails are truly awe-inspiring. We recommend the Soldiers Pass Trail and the Huckaby Trail. For the more advanced hiker who enjoys some climbing, try the Cathedral Rock Trail. Although this one is a steep climb the views are unbeatable.
These are just some of the thousands of amazing and breathtaking hiking trails found in the USA.
