3 Best Hiking Spots In North America 

Hiking is one of the most popular outdoor activities in North America. Nothing beats hiking trails and immersing yourself in the untainted beauty of America’s national parks and wilderness areas. Let’s take a look at the top three excellent hiking or outdoor adventure spots recommended by Wanderlust Tips USA.

Many of the best day treks in the United States, Canada, and Alaska may be found in the country’s National Parks and wilderness areas. These hikes will include both well-known and extremely crowded paths (which some may want to avoid on purpose) as well as lesser-known routes. Here is a top list of the best hiking spots on the continent, carefully chosen to meet your specific requirements.

The Narrows, Zion National Park 

There are many narrow canyons in the southeast section of Zion National Park, where the Virgin River flows for several miles, but Zion Narrows is said to be the best that may be explored without specialized equipment. The river is more likely to entirely fill the gorge in the narrowest places, making for a spectacular sight. It is also close to the Temple of Sinawava trailhead, making it easy to access on an out-and-back trip. So don’t be concerned.

The most interesting aspect of this place is that there is no actual trail; you must wade upstream from sandbank to sandbank in knee-to-thigh-deep water. To see the best of the Narrows, hike as far as you can until you reach the confluence of Orderville Canyon and the Narrows, near the beginning of a stunning stretch that extends all the way up to Big Spring.

However, if you are trekking through Zion Narrows during the rainy season or if there is a flash flood warning (updated daily and available in the Park), you should keep this in mind. It is preferable to visit The Narrows in June, September, or early October. The weather was pleasant at the time, and the risk of flash floods was minimal.

The Grinnell Glacier Overlook, Glacier National Park, Canada

Glacier National Park, located in northern Montana near the Canadian border, is known for its breathtaking glacial beauty, vast route system, and a diversity of unique animals. If you’re looking for a trail for a day trek, we recommend following the Highline Trail from Logan Pass along the base of the Garden Wall.

The trail crosses with the Grinnell Glacier Overlook trail after approximately 7kilometres of moderate trekking with nonstop views of the park’s western peaks. It’s a thousand-foot ascent in less than a mile from the junction to a slot in the Garden Wall overlooking Upper Grinnell Lake and the Grinnell Glacier. As a result, you should be well prepared to deal with adversity.

Never give up when you are half way through a journey. The stunning scenery here is a fitting reward for your efforts.

The Panorama Trail, Yosemite National Park 

Most Yosemite paths offer spectacular vistas to visitors; as a result, they are highly crowded during peak seasons and busiest times of the year. Hikers frequently begin their journey on the Valley floor, although it is difficult to ignore the hustle and activity when you begin your adventure there. Instead, the Panorama Trail, much of which is surprisingly little used, is your best bet.

We’ll drive from Glacier Point to Illilouette Falls, one of the best drive-up panoramas in America’s National Park, and stop for a look. When you reach the top of Negada Falls, you are taken aback by the uniqueness of the magnificent but very wet Mist Trail down to the Valley. If you are frightened of falling, you can take the John Muir Trail, which is less scenic but drier.

Spring is an excellent season to schedule a hike here; you may be surprised by nature’s beautiful waterfalls. Taking a bus from the Valley bottom to Glacier Point is another excellent option for experiencing breathtaking scenery. 

If you hear the voices of North America’s snow-capped peaks, craggy cliffs, towering volcanoes, and old-growth forests, it’s time to put on your boots and hit the trails. Notably, conditions can change quickly from season to season (and sometimes even from hour to hour), so exercise extreme caution. Furthermore, these are rather long and tough hikes that could be better suited to someone with a strong constitution who wants to develop their will.
