By now, you’ve probably gotten pretty good at hiking the trail between bed, bathroom, and sofa. But the time will come when you can trade your bedroom walls for canyon walls, and get super socially distanced on a day hike or overnight adventure.
Yelpers all over the country have been reviewing their favorite hikes for years. It’s no surprise to see several national parks made the list, but searching through reviews also revealed some trails less traveled that you may want to incorporate into your post-quarantine leg stretching goals.
Local Michigander Alejandro M touts Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore as, “Such a beautiful place to spend time with the family. A mixture of hiking, swimming and cycling awaits those who visit the dunes.”
In Florida, Faith E gives the lowdown on Circle B Bar Reserve: “If you want to take a stroll and see some wildlife, this is the place! It’s free, so pop in any day and pick a trail.”
Angel’s Landing in Utah’s Zion National Park is breathtaking in beauty and in heart-pounding adrenaline. Angelina B notes that it’s, “Physical and strenuous since there’s a lot of rocks to get up and you have to hold on to the chains to also pull yourself up sometimes. Very fun in my opinion, maybe it’s the thrill from the dangerous nature of the hike.”
Whether it’s glacial views, precarious peaks, or casual strolls on the beach, Yelpers have incredible insights on their state’s top trails to help you plan a hike just as soon as possible.
