On the Trail

There is nothing better than being out on the trail, feeling the breeze on your face and the rush of a spectacular view. Hiking days generally start early, after breakfast, and cover around 5 to 15 miles per day. Some days may have rolling hills or steep inclines, but there are plenty of rest stops on the way—plus a hearty lunch and dinner (per your itinerary).
