Hittin’ the old dusty trailhead.
It may sound a little sentimental, but stepping onto any of the tens of thousands of trails in America’s National Parks and protected lands is to step onto the pages of history. It is to weave your own story into the tapestry of adventures that connects all great explorers who have tread these sacred lands. At the very least, it means that you wanted to take a little stroll through nature.
Why do we hike? We hike for the vista points, gorges, valleys, waterfalls and snow-capped mountain ranges that seem to disappear into the horizon. From Yosemite to Lake Powell to Denali to Olympic, our National Parks and protected lands have some of the best hikes on earth, so dust off your boots and find your trail!
