There are tons of trails you can hike wherever you are.
For the thrill seekers out there, there’s nothing like hiking the world’s most dangerous trails. It’s almost an addiction of some sort. That pump of adrenaline and natural high you get is unmatched.
If you’re new to hiking, feel your stomach turn as we reveal to you the world’s deadliest hikes.
- The Maze, Canyon Lands (Utah)
127 Hours is the stuff of nightmares but wait until you reach the remotest section of Canyonlands National Park, where you can find the notorious Maze. You’ll be welcomed by an endless web of red, dusty, dead-end gorges carved over the millennia by ancient rivers. Oh and let’s not forget the scorching 110 degrees. Should you end up going during rainy season, the flashfloods are the scariest.
- El Camino Del Rey, Andalucia (Spain)
Don’t let this short hike fool you. It’s been named the world’s most dangerous walkway no thanks to the decaying footpath that clings to gorge walls that can plunge anyone to his death at over 300 feet. We feel it worth mentioning that there is no handrail to hold on to.
- Devil’s Path, Catskills (New York)
Catskills is not just known as a haven for anglers all over the world. Hikers flock this area for what is known as the Devil’s Path. Stretching over 20 miles with an elevation of 14,000 feet, this dangerous trail is glossed with algae and moss. Plus, hikers need to climb over slippery rocks and tree roots. Yikes!
It’s all about hiking responsibly. Don’t forget to prepare yourself, bring enough gear and be in touch with rescue and rangers in the area.
