Spring is here and if you haven’t dusted off your hiking shoes you better have a good excuse-like a broken leg or recent ACL surgery. The whole season is spread out before you for walking out into the showy extravagance of nature, and here are the best places in America to do that in one day.
Note: These are not ranked.
1. Observation Point, Zion National Park, Utah
Of course you’ve heard of Angels Landing in Zion, and The Narrows, and maybe The Subway. This one is a little longer than Angels Landing (8 miles RT), a little more strenuous, and gives a view of Zion Canyon from above-you’re actually looking down on Angels Landing, if you can wrap your head around that.
