BACKPACKER's 5 Favorite Hikes of 2018

From Catalonia to California, our staff picks their top trails of the year.

The biggest perk of working for BACKPACKER: We get to hike. A lot. Over the course of this year, we trekked our way across the United States and six different countries, logging more trail miles and nights in camp than we could count. But a few stood out. We asked our staff for their single favorite hike of the year; these were the days outside that we'll still be thinking about in 2019.
