  Hiking | Hikes
We have thousands of nature trails and interpretive trails, lake hikes and river hikes, hikes to viewpoints and mountain summits, urban hiking trails and backcountry treks — something for hikers of all abilities and experience levels, from the occasional day-hiker or nature walker to the seasoned hiker and long trail backpacker.
Each hiking trip is a complete chapter from a hiking or backpacking guidebook and includes a detailed trail map, driving directions, and a clear description of the route, all produced by well-known outdoor guidebook publishers.
Every hiking trail is linked to USGS topographic maps from the trail overview page, and many also offer a host of additional features like photos, trail elevation profiles, regional locator maps, and interesting natural, geographical, and historical information on the hike and the region.
