What are some of your favorite hikes in the lower 48 states?

I'm looking to go hiking in September and would appreciate some input. Thank you

Second sky pond. Been twice. Once serene, once during 100mph wind gusts. Both in summer. Was actually warmer in June than in late August. I need to do Black Lake now.

Also loved Glacier Point to Nevada Falls via Panorama Trail in Yosemite.

They are doing timed entry in RMNP again this summer.

Tolmie Peak and Spray Park. - Mt. Rainier Natl. Park (two out and back day hikes originating at Mowich Lake, best during wild flower season in mid to late July)

Sunrise area - Mt. Rainier Natl. Park (multiple day hike options with amazing views of Mt. Rainier, great in early September)

Snowgrass Flats, Pacific Crest Trail, Goat Ridge - Goat Rocks Wilderness Area, Gifford Pinchot Natl. Forest, WA (can be day or multi day hikes)

Pacific Coast - Olympic Natl. Park (60 miles of undeveloped ocean coast within a Natl. Park, with a few gaps, Be sure to use trail, not beach to go around headlands. Highlight areas for day hikes are Shi Shi Beach, Rialto Beach, and Point of the Arches)

If you can get a day permit, climbing Mt. St. Helens is spectacular and a lot of fun. Tons of other great hikes around the mountain as well. It's an incredible and bizarre area.

Fiery Gizzard in Tennessee was pretty nice. It was recommended here and I am glad I took the advice. Awesome trail

Mt. Washington in NH or really anything on that part of the Appalachian Trail. September might be too late, though.

My favorite ‘popular’ hike is probably Highline Trail in Glacier, or Black Lake or Chasm Lake in RMNP.

My favorite unpopular hike is my special secret.

I love the Franconia Ridge hike and the Kinsman Ridge hike in the fall. Both offer great views with primitive camping options but also the opportunity to stay at an AMC hut.

I don’t remember specific trail names but I hiked a few diff trails around Hurricane ridge (Olympic national park) and that’s some of the most amazing scenery. I could just sit up there and look around all day.

The best one I’ve been on so far. Did the bottoms up route and made it to the turn around point. All in all, about 8 hours. I can’t imagine only making it to Wall Street though. The first two miles are packed with people. Once you get passed Wall Street it clears up considerably.
