Backpacker Magazine BEST. HIKES. EVER.

Kelly Bastone and Dave Pidgeon:

We’ve covered 245,591 miles of trails in our 37-year history. Here are our 20 all-time favorite trips …


John Muir Trail, CA | Escalante Route, AZ | Teton Crest Trail, WY | Denali, AK | Presidential Traverse, NH | The Lost Coast Trail, CA | The Needles Traverse, CO | St. Mary to Lake McDonald, MT | Appalachian Trail, GA-ME | Zion Narrows, UT | Wonderland Trail, WA | Southern Traverse, AK | Four-Pass Loop, CO | The Long Trail, VT | Boundary Waters, MN | Wind Traverse, WY | Redwood Creek Trail, CA | Olympic Traverse, WA | Willow Gulch, UT | Northville-Placid Trail, NY |


I know and like all of those in the west and north. But what about the eastern trails:

•  Northville-Placid Trail , NY
•  Boundary Waters , MN
•  The Long Trail , VT

As a biased west-is-the-bester, I’d best do some research on those.
