Travel Tip: 5 US Hiking Destinations – as part of the expert series by GeoBeats.
My top five hiking destinations in the US: there are so many places to hike in the United States; I would start with the best, which is Yellowstone National Park. It’s an American icon, there’s so much wildlife there, and so many opportunities to see nature. Second, I would say the Grand Teton National Park, which is right by Yellowstone; also a great place to see buffalo and bears and other wildlife. I would recommend as my third spot Fire Island; there is actually camping there, even though it’s somewhat of a luxury destination, so that’s a great way to see nature and also get a taste of the local boutiques. Fourth, I would say Nickerson State Park in Cape Cod, another budget way to experience a traditional getaway destination; great hiking and biking in that area. And finally, I would say the ski resorts of Utah; for example, Alta Resort in the summer has great hiking trails. You can see moose, and you can really get up close with the mountains and nature.
