When wanderlust takes hold, check out these spectacular hiking trails amid the world’s most gorgeous landscapes.
November 17th is “Take a Hike” day. While you might not be interested in climbing the most dangerous trail in the world, these hiking trails might pique your fancy:
1. Overland Track, Lake St. Clair National Park, Australia
It usually takes six days to travel the Overland Track, which runs 40 miles (65 km) from Cradle Mountain to Lake St. Clair, Australia’s deepest lake. Along this lengthy trek, you’ll encounter a rainforest, moorlands, alpine meadows, and carved valleys, as well as several beautiful summits and waterfalls.
During the busiest walking season (the month of October), you must reserve a spot and pay a fee, but any other time of year guests are welcome to explore at their leisure. As part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, the track has a reputation for being one of the best wilderness trails around.
