Tucked away in every corner of the country and nestled around every turn, America is home to countless jaw-dropping landscapes – and while you can experience these breathtaking destinations by car (perhaps on one of these 17 iconic American road trips) – one of our favorite ways to experience them is on foot. 

From Washington state to the southern tip of Florida, the United States of America is home to incredible hiking trails that offer unrivaled beauty and adventure for hikers of all experience levels. Our list of these 13 bucket list-worthy hikes ranges from easy to challenging, and some take you completely off the grid. Whether we are hiking to The Wave in Arizona after finally receiving that permit or hiking in a new spot near our hometown, we’ve always had AllTrails+ in our pocket. And this summer, they’ve updated their award-winning app with even more features that make getting outside even easier.

Many of these incredible hikes are nestled within National Parks, and AllTrails also has the perfect pairing to make the most of your next excursion: you can purchase AllTrails+ and a National Parks Pass for just $99 – a 14 percent savings. If you’re not ready to make the commitment, you can also enjoy a free week of AllTrails+ on us
