The Sunday insert magazine “USA Weekend” came out with their list of the “10 best hiking trails.” Yes, anyone can make up a list and the planet is too big to just have 10.
I would add the Milford track in the South Island of New Zealand. I’ve been on Milford Sound and it is a 3,000 ft deep pool bigger than Yosemite Valley. I’ve not done the hike.
Another I’d like to do is the Chilcoot Trail in Alaska. Gold miners trudged up the pass at a very steep angle on the way to the Yukon gold rush.
The top 10 are:
1. John Muir Trail
2. Grand Canyon Rim to Rim
3. Mt Everest Base Camp
4. Mt Fritz Roy, Chile
5. The Narrows – Zion
6. Kalalau Trail Hawaii
7. Sentiero Azzuro, Italy
8. Mt Blanc
9. Inca Trail Peru
10. Overland Track, Australia
Read – Good light for hikes
How many have you been on? I’m up to five. But I have to admit, I;m an ecletic guy – I do lkots of different things. I;’d rather go uynderwater than trek for weeks. I’ve got 250 scuba dives and am itching to get back in.
