There is luxury travel and then ultra-luxury travel. Joining a private jet tour is a common way for well-to-do, worldly travelers with destinations and adventures still on their bucket lists to explore the world in the lap of luxury, comfortably. The US is a vast country with varied countryside. There are many different hiking destinations throughout America, and you will undoubtedly find the best hiking destination for you within the borders of one of the most beautiful countries in the world, the US.

Let’s take a look at some of the best hiking destinations that you should visit on a private jet hiking tour to the US.

Lost Coast Hiking Trail, California

In Northern California, the Lost Coast Trail is still forgotten. Logging companies attempted to construct a road through here yet failed to.

Instead, Highway 1 cuts inland into the windy coastal hills and redwood forests from the sea. Setting off from Black Sands Beach near Shelter Cove is around a 25-mile hike that can be walked either way (north-south or vice-versa).

Lost Coast Trail from the south runs to Usal Beach about 30 miles south of Black Sands Beach for those who are looking for an even longer walk.

Tonto Trail, Arizona (Grand Canyon National Park)

The Tonto Trail is an incredible multi-day hike to make the dream a reality for those who have dreamt of seeing the Grand Canyon from inside the Canyon itself. Officially known as South Rim Walk, the Tonto Trail stretches from Garnet to Red Canyon. Water can be a problem on the Tonto, especially in summer.

Appropriate sources of water include Hermit Creek, Monument Creek, and Garden Creek, but note that you Should filter or treat water as it could be laden with heavy metals and unpleasant bacteria. The backcountry campsites located along this path need to be reserved with the Backcountry Rangers Office with a wilderness permit.

Trans-Catalina Trail, California

Catalina Island is located 22 miles south of the mainland and couldn’t be any more distinct from the Southern California continental. The hiking can be rough, as it is pretty exposed all along the route. It’s not a great hike for the summer months as it can be scorching.

There are hidden beaches and a spectacular desert-island landscape.

You can walk the hike really at your own pace. Whether you happen to be a slower hiker, if you’re hiking it in the summer sun, bare in mind that the walk will take you around four days to complete.

Mount Katahdin, Maine

Mount Katahdin is the iconic peak where hikers on the Appalachian Trail either begin or end their epic journey. Ths hike can be tough. However, it certainly is worth the effort; a Katahdin ascent provides sweeping views from Maine’s tallest mountain state in all directions. The road is steep and slow-moving mercilessly in areas along the so-called Knife’s Edge path. The hike is an absolute pleasure, with the right level of fitness, rewarded by the beautiful scenery found at the top.


The 10 Most Spectacular Outdoor Lounges in the World


Cracker Lake, Montana

The scenery is spectacular, and the crowds are not as plentiful as you might expect from such a magnificent national park. The trip to Cracker Lake can be made as an intense day-hike, or as a relaxing overnight stay. I suggest the latter. Trust me, the last thing you want to do once you arrive here is turn around and leave. Glacier National Park stays relatively cold for the majority of the year due to its northern location. I can not think of a better place to be on a good, bright summer’s day.

Longs Peak, Colorado

Colorado Longs Peak is one of the most impressive 14,000-foot peaks that one can climb in the state. The walk is both challenging and satisfying. Many hikers head out while it’s still dark in the early hours of the morning.

You can catch the sunrise above the tree line by doing so and still allow yourself enough time to complete the trek before sunset. The Longs Peak hike climbs more than 5,000 feet through the regular Keyhole path. Half the people attempting to reach the top of Long’s peak do not make it to the summit.

The Narrows, Utah

The Narrows in Zion National Park, Utah, is not only one of the best hiking destinations in the US, but one of the world’s best hikes in slot canyons. Few other places on earth offer the chance to get down in a canyon and gawk at the eroded rock walls of 18 million years. The Narrows refer to two hikes, both the bottom-up hike of 3.6 miles (5.8 km) from Sinawava Temple to Big Springs, as well as the top-down hike of 16 miles (26 km) from Chamberlain’s Ranch back to Sinawava Temple (for which we suggest taking a backpacking tent and making it an overnight stay).

Water levels vary from season to season; most hikers wade waist-deep at least, and others swim a few short sections. Flash flood danger is a very significant problem to remember while walking the Narrows, and usually hiking slot canyons.

As you can see, the US has some of the best hiking destinations. Whether you are on your own or with family, America has many fabulous choices.
