Fit Travel: 10 Best Coastal Hikes in the United States

America has thousands of miles of hikeable trails stretching up the east and west coasts, ringing the Great Lakes and lining the Alaskan shoreline. Here are the 10 best walking routes for hiking junkies looking to plan a vacation.

Parry Grove Trail & High Point Trail, California

Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve sits just north of San Diego off of Coast Highway 101. Though it’s a busy favorite for California natives looking for an outdoorsy weekend, you can escape the crowds and hike a low-to-high combo of the High Point and Parry Grove Trails. The trailheads are clearly marked and sit right across from each other on Torrey Pines Park Road. Parry Grove Trail descends sharply a half-mile down a steep set of stairs to a quiet scenic ocean overlook. Haul yourself back up and across the road, to climb 100 yards up to High Point, another scenic overlook from a different perspective. Don’t be fooled by the trails’ short distances—if you hike both, you’re sure to get in your glute-busting workout.
