National Parks, Monuments, BLM Sites, Forest Service, your local State Parks as well as other federal and local public lands are excellent places to go hiking. Hiking is a wonderful way to stay healthy and fit. Exploring parks on foot is one of the best ways to get to know your parks. The majority of visitors don’t usually explore past scenic viewpoints or short walks so going further and venturing into a park will always be a much more rewarding experience. The best experiences are typically day hikes so bring your backpack, food and water bottle and go explore your parks on foot!
