Fodorites' Most Spectacular U.S. Day Hikes: The List

Jump to last reply

A year and a half ago, I commented on this site that 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.:

www.fodors.com/forums/threadselect.jsp?fid=1&tid=34936912

I said I wanted to plan more great day hikes and pass my recommendations on to any Fodorites who love the outdoors and are in reasonably good shape. An amazing number of Fodorites responded with their great suggestions for their most spectacular day hikes in the U.S. (and some abroad, too).

I thought then that one day I’d like to organize those suggestions into a more coherent list by region/state to make it useable. Now, anticipating the summer and fall hiking season, I've finally done so and I hope this is a resource that other Fodorite day hiking fanatics will find useful too.

The U.S. hikes are listed by region, by state(s) within a region, and (roughly) by groups within a state. The contributing Fodorites for each hike are also listed by their user names, with interesting comments they made about particular hikes added in parentheses. (Please keep those recommendations coming, but make sure they’re way above average hikes – among the best you’ve ever done.)
