Backpacking Destinations


Popular Backpacking Destinations in the US National Parks

There is no better way to get to know a park than by heading out into the backcountry and going backpacking. Getting away from the more heavily populated areas and surrounding yourself in the true wilderness of any park is the most rewarding experience and a true way of getting outdoors. The serenity and calm of the great outdoors is best experienced with a backpack on your back and a bivy under the big night sky. This is the ultimate way to enjoy any park that has backcountry areas and wilderness.
