10 Hikes to Do Solo

Because sometimes, you just need to get away from it all.
By Mattie Schuler

 


Timberline Trail, Mt. Hood National Forest, Oregon
For a multi-day solo backpacking trip, take the 36-mile trek around Mt. Hood. You start and end at Timberline Lodge trailhead, and do need a permit in the summer, though they are free. This is a more strenuous hike that will test your limits, but you’ll get a good variety of solo hiking as well as some populated areas and campsites, if you're in need of some emergency socialization.

Sorry BP, not loading 10 pages to get this. One scrollable page is better.

Seriously, yes seriously!! Driving, or going to the grocery store is dangerous. But when solo hiking or backpacking you are responsible for you, and you plan and prepare accordingly. It's not for everyone, and those who aren't suited for it could have Darwin Moments. But for those who can solo, and are prepared, the rewards are magnificent, rich, and soulfully fulfilling.

You actually publish an article about going out by yourself? And you say sometimes you just need to get away from it all? It's not just dangerous, it can be life threatening.
