Hiking frees my soul. When I go hiking, no matter the difficulty of the trail, there is always something thrilling about being out in the wild with nothing but me, my mates, and my backpack.
However, what truly inspires me to hike is the destination. When I travel to snowcapped peaks, rough cliffs, and pristine forests, the immensity and magnificence of the place remind me how beautiful life is.
So here, in this post, I want to share my three personal picks of the best hiking spots in the country:

Appalachian trail: Going through fourteen states along the crests and valleys of the Appalachian mountain range, nothing beats Appalachian trail when it comes to hardcore adventure. The past month’s white winter, solid ice, and freezing temperatures, gave me an intense appreciation for the place. It is the best trail for those who want to reconnect with nature and to experience a simpler life.
Cascade Mountain: Ranked among USA Today’s “Top 20 Trails Across the U.S.,” Cascade Mountain is a great choice for beginners. I enjoy visiting the place, especially when accompanied by my wife and my ten-year-old son, Jaden. It’s a perfect alternative for those who prefer visiting mountains with more greens and waterfalls.
Mt. Tammany: This particular destination is one among the best options for hikers who love spectacular views and diverse trail options. Its distance, which is listed at 1.5 miles, is pretty manageable for anyone who is planning a short escape out of the hustle and bustle of the city.
