Hiking Fodorites: Name the Most Spectacular Day Hikes You've Ever Done

Jump to last reply

Other than marriage and the birth of my kids, some of the most exhilirating days I've ever spent have been day hiking in the Western U.S. I'd like to plan more and I'd recommend these to any Fodorites who love the outdoors and are in reasonably good shape. I'm an addict, so please add your favorites to the list (not listed in any particular order):

1. Half Dome - Yosemite National Park
2. Upper Yosemite Falls - Yosemite N.P.
3. Glacier Point > Panorama Trail > John Muir Trail > Mist Trail - Yosemite N.P.
4. Angel's Landing - Zion N.P.
5. The Narrows - Zion N.P.
6. Long's Peak - Rocky Mountain N.P.
7. Kalalau Trail - Kauai North Shore
8. South Kaibab Trail - Grand Canyon National Park (only hiked one way in a single day)
9. Guadalupe Peak - Guadalupe Mountains National Park

This list is exclusively west of the Mississippi, but I'm also interested in any spectacular hikes in the East.
http://gorp.away.com/gorp/activity/hiking/hik_guid.htm is a good hiking resource, but I'm interested in recommendations for any other particularly good hiking web sites.
