7 Best National Parks For Hiking In United States 

1. Yosemite National Park

The Merced River flows through it all, fed by creeks hidden in hanging valleys. 

2. Zion National Park

Zion, in Utah, vies for the top spot in my personal hierarchy of US national parks (the other contender is Redwood — see below). 

3. Bryce Canyon National Park

While visiting Zion National Park, try to make the two-hour drive to Bryce. 

4. Arches National Park

My short, mile-round route took me near to Delicate Arch, the most striking arch in the park. 

5. Redwood National Park

A four- to five-hour drive north of San Francisco, the world’s tallest trees grow in this park, rising to over 100 m (328 ft). 

6. Grand Canyon National Park

It may sound hackneyed, but I don’t think any photographs of the Grand Canyon can do it justice.  

7. Death Valley National Park

It’s the driest, hottest and lowest national park in the USA, a seemingly barren basin of desert, canyons, salt flats and sand dunes.
