Theodore Roosevelt National Park is, in and of itself, an incredible destination. At 70,446 acres in size, it’s nothing to shake a stick at – but it is, indeed, an amazing backdrop for your next adventure (or the next several adventures, if we’re being real here). Take, for example, the iconic hiking trail in North Dakota called the Coal Vein Trail. It’s short, sweet, to the point, and absolutely jaw-dropping – a destination within a destination. While open year-round, I personally think the best time to hike this one is in spring and summer, when everything’s lush and green – trust me, you’ll lose your mind as much as I did at how wondrous it all is.
