Which states have the best hiking?
Although hiking is subjective based on your skill level and what kind of landscapes you prefer, you can find great trails in just about any state, although Colorado, Washington, and California tend to be considered some of the best states for hiking thanks to the west coast’s high-elevation mountain ranges. However, as the home of the Appalachian Trail, the east coast’s hiking shouldn’t be downplayed and you can also find lots of great trails from Georgia to Maine that become all the more beautiful when autumn colors take hold.
How do I find the best places to go hiking near me?
