Although I would love to hike them all, the Long Range Traverse, in Newfoundland, Canada seems very doable to me. It's not too far from where I live. It's only 25 miles, although I'm not sure why they say it's a 6 day trip - I can easily do 7-15 miles a day, depending on the terrain.
It’s a route you have to earn: 25 miles by map and compass (there are no trails here) through an impressive wilderness populated mostly by moose and caribou—but not Homo sapiens. The payoff is genuine solitude, pristine camps, and the joy of traveling untrammeled backcountry in Canada’s most out-there province. —Peter Potterfield
The Details: This trail is not a trail at all. It is a romp across the wilds of Gros Morne National Park, a chunk of land that time forgot on the North Atlantic seaboard. It is well organized and strictly managed, however, with designated camp spots that break the trip down into a six-day adventure. The rules work in your favor—you may share one of those campsites with moose, caribou, or black bear as you trek over tundra and down to hidden lakes, but you won’t run into many other people.
Definitely sounds like my kind of place.
After weeks and weeks of rain and high humidity, our weather has finally broken, giving us beautiful, crystal clear, sunshine and deep blues skies. I am about to lace up my boots and go into the mountains to enjoy it.
So, anybody else out there a hiker? I'd love to know your favorite spots, or your dream places, and why.
