There may be no better way to see what’s so fabulous about Yosemite Valley than to hike the Four-Mile Trail, which climbs from the valley floor near the Swinging Bridge to the south valley rim at Glacier Point (or vice versa, or both, depending on your inclination). This hike offers great views of most of the landmarks that Yosemite Valley’s famous for, and all from angles you’re not used to seeing on postcards.
This trail has amazing views that begin very early in the hike. The route to Limber Pine Bench is one of the lesser known (and lesser traveled) view points in SoCal, providing a nice break from the more crowded trails like Mt. San Antonio.
This stretch of land is a particularly spectacular part of Washington State. The Hannegan Peak hike traverses the north side of a long valley with Ruth creek running below. Waterfalls tumble down from glaciers along the side of Mount Sefrit and Nooksack Ridge. The most interesting thing about Hannegan Peak is it’s volcanic origin.
A scenic, fun and exciting non-technical canyon hike with plenty of swimming through ice cold narrows.
The Chasm Lake day hike is a popular hike to one of the area’s highest and most dramatic lakes.
The Bridal Veil Falls day hike is a gem tucked away in the northern reaches of Rocky Mountain National Park. This twenty foot waterfall hidden away in the northern reaches of Rocky Mountain National Park makes for a great destination hike.
Glistening lakes, colorful peaks and lush meadows are a few of the scenic delights of this great hike up the West and East Forks of Green Creek leading to Summit Lake.
