Top 100 Trails - Best Trails in North America

Going outside and enjoying the fresh air is just what we need to make our Summer complete.  Similar to exercise routines, our bodies do not want to walk or hike the same route each and every day. 

Treat your eyes, body and mind with new trails that can challenge your fitness.  Try a wonderful family day and outing for everyone to explore new places.

There are many different trails that are man made, natural and historic that exist along old railway tracks, paths or roads that get you from point A to B.  Finding a trail that is a gentle grade, easy access and away from road traffic is ideal.  Click here for the complete Top 100 Trails by www.Trails.com and below are their top 5 to get you started.
