    My favorite place to hike is along the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area among the waterfalls (I like Multnomah Falls and Bridal Veil Falls) and up Larch Mountain because there is a hike here for everyone no matter how little time you may have. There are simple hikes that are flat and less than 1/2 mile long and there are hikes as long as 60 miles and some with elevation changes as much as 6000 feet! It's beautiful. The waterfalls provide pools of icy water to play in and streams to cool you off, there are magnificent views and quiet overgrown forest. You'll see furry creatures and wildflowers and there's no such thing as the wrong season - a cold one, may be, but even in the cold, the trails are an adventure if you're prepared.Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Areaimage from org2.democracyinaction.org

    I also love some of the hiking in the mountains near Valencia where you'll stumble across old Roman aquaducts and river mouths. There's one just an hour out in Bejís where you can go to the source of the river Palancia and follow it (follow signs to Camping los Cloticos then stay left up the road to the source), mostly walking through the cold icy river quite a way down. The water is crystal clear and there are waterfalls along the way.Bejís

    There are entire books written on the hiking routes through the coastal mountains and natural park areas from Castellón south to Benidorm and beyond. Check out the green areas on the map. I hiked a bit in the Parque Natural de la Sierra Calderona. It's immense. Serra and Segart are good places to start a hike. I usually walked from the Urbanizacion Los Monasterios where it's an easy hike to Monte Picaio where there's a rocky drop off on the cliff's edge and a view of the Mediterranean. From here, you can walk a couple hours (or less if you're fast) to Monasterio de santo espiritu where you can stop for a break and get a water or coffee in their small cafe. It's near Gilet which is another place to park and begin your hike.

      I agree! I spent a few nights in Wilson's Prom including an overnight on the Grand Circuit. This park is also the best I found to see wombats! · (0 likelikes)

    I absolutely love the Tongariro Alpine Crossing in New Zealand, the Besseggen Fjellpark Maurvangen in Norway and the Landmannalaugar hike in Iceland. Tongariro is a blasted volcanic hellscape with steam pouring out of vents in the ground - you saw it if you watched Lord of the Rings. We started off at Mangatepopo at 7 a.m., did the 2-hour sidetrip up Mt Ngauruhoe and made it to Ketetahi Hutby about 3 p.m.

    Tongariro Alpine Crossing

    Bessegen is, even in the summer, chilly and surrounded by snowy mountains. There are huge lakes of glacial melt everywhere. Most people take a boat out to Memurubu and then hike back after looking around and spending the night. We arrived around at about 1 p.m., hiked to Memurubu, spent the night, returned on the boat and headed to Flåm.

    Besseggen Fjellpark Maurvangen

    And Landmannalaugar ... OK, the movie Prometheus wasn't great, but the scenery in the opening credits was spectacular. That's Landmannalaugar. It's also the subject of one of my favorite blog posts. You can do this as a 1-day out-and-back, or a four-day trip to Þórsmörk.

    I have hiked in many places around the globe and some of my favorite hikes were in Azores Nepal Mont Blanc Petra Banaue and the portuguese camino from Porto to Santiago de Compostela

    And a place that few people think about as a good hiking place is Hong Kong but that place actually has some really good hiking right outside the busy city center.
