5 MUST VISIT Summer Hiking/Camping Locations
Amiright? or amiright?
- Green Mountain National Forest in Vermont
"Um, why would I wanna go there though?"
Well, well, well. Lemme just tell you. Vermont's 270+ mile long hiking trail runs through this forest. This trail, known as Vermont's "Long Trail", is the oldest long-distance trail in the U.S.
2. Minnewaska State Park Preserve in New York (the state lol)
"You mean to tell me... this... is in New York?"
Why yes I do mean to tell you that this place is in New York! AND GUESS WHAT? It's not even far away from New York City! How crazy is that?!?! This is the perfecto place for the city gal/pal who has a heart that yearns for nature.
3. Kickapoo Caverns in Texas
"LOL, you said poo!"
Yes, the name is a little funky haha! The origins of the name come from the native Algonquin people. The native name of the group of nomads was kiikaapoa, which can be translated to "wanderer". Whoaaaaa, whaat?! (same). The group once lived in Illinois then moved to other states such as, Texas. BUT what makes this place so special is the multiple bat caves surrounding the area.
4. Denali National Park in Alaska
"HA. You said Alas-... HAHAHA. No way Alaska is way too far and cold for me."
Now, now. Alaska's summer is beautiful and you can see the most beautiful sites during this time of the year in this state. Denali is the mountain that resides within the park, commonly known as Mount McKinley, and it is the tallest peak in North America.
5. Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park in California
"What's a sequoia?"
EXACTLY. If you don't know what a sequoia is... you DEFINITELY need to visit this park. Cause you, my friend, are missing out. Within Sequoia National Park is the GREAT AND MIGHTY General Sherman Sequoia tree. By volume, General Sherman is the largest single stem tree on Earth. If you ever wondered what it was like to feel like an ant... Sherman will definitely show you what it's like.
Happy adventurin' fam!
