    favorite hiking areas

    My wife and i recently did some day hikes in The Smokies. This a picture on Valentine's Day of a partially frozen Ramsey Cascades in the park. It was an eight mile round trip rated strenuous. The terrain varied from steady gravel uphill climb to ice and snow as the elevation changed. What are some Redszoners favorite hikes?

    Linville Gorge in western North Carolina.

    Parts of The Last of Mohicans was filmed there, the first Hunger Games movie was filmed down the road to give an idea of how beautiful the area is.

    I do some day hiking now and then in the Deam Wilderness. This is 12,000 acres on the south side of Lake Monroe, eleven miles from my house. The Hoosier has a lot of good day hiking spots, best in the fall, IMO. It's about 2.5 hours from Cincinnati. And if you're into mountain biking, the area is a mecca.

    Deer Creek Canyon just outside of Denver. It's less than 20 minutes from my house. I'm a lucky guy.

    Gorgeous, stuff. One thing that keeps me from doing much hiking is that it's just kind of boring. I know that sounds like a total cop out, but honestly, even though forests here can be very nice and even remote in some ways, it's not like hiking in the west, or in the Adirondacks or the Appalachians. There are pockets of very interesting terrain but it's often a small part of the trip.

    I agree totally. That is why we try to get to the Smokies when we can! I hike Shawnee and Zaleski forests here in Ohio. They are both nice, but no real payoffs such as gorgeous views or waterfalls. Hocking has nice scenery but has really short hikes.
