Havasupai Trail

Classified as a moderately difficult hike to both Supai, Arizona and Havasu Falls, this trail can also be traveled by horseback or a specialty mule service which offers the option to bring down more personal items. Havasu and Mooney Falls (both of which have been widely photographed) are also key sights on this journey, along with Beaver Falls, Fifty Foot Falls and Little Navajo Falls.

There is a spring located in the middle of the campgrounds which offers fresh water (that you would need to boil or filter just in case). The average time frame to complete this 20 mile hike is around three days.


Niagara Gorge Rim Trail

A beautiful hike to explore is the Niagara Gorge Rim Trail in the Niagara Falls State Park, which allows visitors to experience the stunning vistas of the River Gorge. Some areas just north of the falls where you should visit are Devil’s Hole and Whirlpool, however, bear in mind that hiking these zones in the winter can be brutally cold.

Since Niagara Falls is located in upstate NY, visiting the falls in the spring, late summer or fall may be better weather wise. Also, fall in upstate NY is especially stunning and there are sometimes less tourists that time of year.


Pipiwai Trail

Situated in Haleakalā National Park, hiking this stunning trail will allow you to experience the varied landscape of Hawaii, including the Pools of Oh’e within a lush, serene bamboo forest.This four mile hike may seem short, but its moderate difficulty and the hilly terrain are both definitely areas you should not overlook in the least.

This trail is located in southeastern Maui, and is known as one of the most precious treasures that attract locals and tourists alike every year. The Pipiwai Trail takes around two and a half hours to complete and the SE section of the park is the best zone with regard to watching sunrise/sunset views.
