Angels Landing, Zion National Park, UT

This is the hike you’ll brag about back home, assuming you’re up for doing it. You hike 2.5 miles up cliffs so steep you have to negotiate them with the help of chains bolted into the rock; the final portion of the trail rides a narrow rock fin with dizzily sharp drop-offs on either side. The reward: phenomenal views and aforementioned bragging rights.
