North Country Trail, Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, MI

8 of 11

A 4,600-mile-long hiking path that stretches from the Crown Point in the Adirondacks in New York to Lake Sakakawea in North Dakota. On Lake Superior’s Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, the NCT stretches along 42 miles of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, taking in 300-foot sandstone bluffs weathered by glaciation and time. The ancient rock formations have fanciful descriptive names like Miner’s Castle and Chapel Rock.

Challenge Level: Medium.

Essential Gear: On rocky shore paths, stabilize yourself with a walking stick and take the pressure off your knees. Find one on the trail or bring your own. (Mountainsmith; $69.)
