16. Only the most adventurous backpackers attempt the Presidential Traverse, an extremely difficult and sometimes dangerous climb through New Hampshire s White Mountains. It s so named for the summits of peaks named after U.S. presidents that must be crossed to complete the journey: Mount Madison, Mount Adams, Mount Jefferson, Mount Washington, Mount Monroe, Mount Eisenhower and Mount Pierce.

Pembrokeshire Coast Path
20. The National Trails website for England and Wales describes this breathtaking coastal trek well: From St. Dogmaels in the north to Amroth in the south, the trail covers almost every kind of maritime landscape, from rugged cliff tops and sheltered coves to wide open beaches and winding estuaries. The 186 mile path is an estimated 35,000 feet of ascents and descents, but some 130 shorter circular walks exist for the not so hardcore hikers.

Sierra High Route
28. A true wilderness lover s adventure, the 195 mile Sierra High Route runs north to south through the Sierra Nevada, crossing 33 passes without any clearly marked trails. Most backpackers choose to tackle one of its five segments, though Backpacker magazine editor Steve Howe hiked the entire thing in one month in 2006. Also known as the Roper Route, this hike is the brainchild of mountaineer Steve Roper, who sought an alternative to the heavily pounded John Muir Trail, says National Geographic. It passes through Kings Canyon National Park, the Inyo National Forest and Yosemite National Park and involves a good deal of boulder hopping and long stretches of peaceful solitude. .....
Half Dome
29. The ultimate way to experience Yosemite National Park, the 14 to 16 mile round trip hike up the Half Dome Yosemite s famous granite dome can be accomplished by even the average, in shape person with some preparation.

Haiku Stairs
30. What began as a wooden ladder installed on a cliff for workers stringing antenna cables evolved into an incredible and challenging trail consisting of approximately 3,922 steps.

Expert hikers can climb to the top of the stairs from the other side of the island and take the trail down. .....
Greater Patagonian Trail
31. This trail is so underdeveloped, isolated, rigorous, and remote that only a few hikers have ever attempted it, never mind completed it. Requiring just as much orienteering, map reading, and logistical planning as actual physical endurance and hiking, this roughly 800 mile route uses horse trails, local paths, country roads, and even pack raft river sections to traverse the Patagonian Andes along the border of Chile and Argentina. It is an unofficial route in its infancy, but the pristine natural beauty of this region will surely attract intrepid backpackers in the years to come. .....
Continental Divide Trail
32. The Continental Divide Trail stretches 3,100 miles from Mexico to Canada along the craggy spine of the Rocky Mountains. While technically considered only about 70% complete, there are still a handful of hearty adventurers who set out each year to conquer what many consider to be the toughest leg of the US Hiking Triple Crown (the other two legs being the AT and the PCT). TheCDT is a rugged trek with high elevations, exposure to the elements, and wildlife hazards, but totally worth the risk for some hikers. The wild western landscapes are jaw dropping. .....
Grand Italian Trail
33. For a whopping 3,832 miles, the Sentiero Italia (or Grand Italian Trail) extends from the Northeastern port town of Trieste, into the Alps, and all the way down the Apennine spine of the Italian peninsula before island hopping to Sicily and then Sardinia. The subalpine scenery along much of this route is simply spectacular, featuring jagged peaks, glacial tarns, and gouged out valleys. Add to that the bonus of quaint hamlets and ancient Roman history, and you ve got yourself a bella formula. Oh, and of course, carbo loading will never be a problem. .....
Wales Coast Path
34. Officially established in 2012 as the world s only footpath to cover an entire country s coastline, the Wales Coast Path is an 870 mile trek that combines some of the UK s most romantic aspects. As it snakes its way up the shore, along coastal cliffs and verdant hillsides, past medieval castles, and through sleepy seaside towns, hikers get to experience the magic of this area intimately. Just imagine wrapping up a rain soaked 20 mile day with a bowl of warm lamb stew and a porter at a small local pub. .....
Pacific Crest Trail
35. The Pacific Crest Trail is 2,663 miles of diverse hiking that begins in the desert and follows the Cascade and Sierra Nevada mountain ranges through California, Oregon, and Washington. It passes through some of this country s most spectacular parks and wilderness areas, including Yosemite, John Muir, Crater Lake, and Goat Rocks. The trail itself is graded for horses, meaning that hikers can typically bag high mileage days. But lack of water and infrequent resupply points pose their own set of challenges. .....
Great Wall of China
36. Didn t expect this one, did you? Sure, the Great Wall of China has sections that are jam packed with khaki clad tourists, but this celebrated structure also has some very remote sections with rarely seen beauty, including deserts, mountains, bamboo forests, and more. Government restrictions, time requirements, extreme weather conditions, and the sheer enormity of this 5,500 mile trek across China makes a thru hike an extremely obstacle laden adventure, but if the Mongols and other nomadic tribes could overcome their barrier to entry, so can you. .....
Tokai Nature Trail
37. Japan is increasingly becoming a world class place to recreate. With its mountainous terrain, powder packed ski destinations, and unprecedented biodiversity, it s only natural that there should be a long distance trail. And the Tokai Nature Trail fits the bill. Running 1,054 miles from Tokyo to Osaka, this generally level and easy footpath takes hikers past iconic Mt. Fuji, through Imperial gardens with cherry blossoms and Japanese maples, and along fertile hillsides, lush wetlands, and hollowed out river canyons. .....
Te Araroa
38. Ah, the Te Araroa Trail (Maori for the Long Pathway). Obviously, any long distance footpath that s located in New Zealand is always going to make the list especially one that so fully encompasses the diverse natural beauty of both islands. Beginning at Cape Reinga in the north and winding 1,864 miles to Stirling Point in the south, this trail almost has too much to savor. Beaches lined with seals and penguins, impossibly lush rainforests, frequently active volcanoes, precipitous mountains, and electric blue glacial lakes. To coin a local Kiwi phrase, this trail is truly Sweet As! .....
