If you’re daring enough to attempt the unforgettable Half Dome hike, come prepared for a full day of sweat and tears! This 20 mile hike will likely take you 12-14 hours roundtrip and requires a permit, but the rewarding scenic views from the peak are unsurpassed.

The numerous hikes and mini-hikes to countless waterfalls make this a great park for families, as so many of the trails are stroller accessible and easy enough for children to tag along. The towering giant sequoias (thousands of years old, literally!) and fields of wildflowers in the off-seasons make for the perfect backdrop for your vacation photos.

Best spots nearby:

Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone is one of America’s most popular national parks, with nearly 3.5 million visitors a year. Old Faithful and the rainbow-colored hot springs are just a couple of Yellowstone’s unique features, but be sure not to miss the lesser-known Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone; the view of the canyon and Yellowstone Falls is unbeatable. If you have yet to see the Rockies, this is a trip to take at least once in your lifetime.

Redwood National Park

Redwood National Park is another park on California’s coast, and possibly the greenest park on our list. Unique attractions like a gondola ride through the Trees of Mystery and the drive-through Redwood tree will keep you entertained when you’re not exploring places like Trillium Falls Trail and Fern Canyon. Take Howland Hill Road through the park to Crescent City to end your trip at the ocean.
