Zion National Park in Utah is filled with narrow canyons, high plateaus, and monolithic cliffs. These make it the perfect destination for canyoneering — or traveling through the canyons — which involves rappelling, swimming, hiking, and other skills.

5. Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, Alaska

Visiting the U.S.'s largest national park, Wrangell-St. Elias, is like stepping into the Ice Age. It's the perfect spot for glacier hiking and ice climbing, and if extreme sports aren't your thing, see the sights in a small plane.

Craters of the Moon encompasses three major lava fields — which makes it feel like another planet — plus miles of grasslands. Hike or explore the caves to really explore the volcanic terrain.

13. Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina and Virginia

The Blue Ridge Mountains, named for the color of the distant ridges, are just a small part of the Appalachian Mountains. Hike the Blue Ridge's section of the Appalachian Trail, great for beginners, and cross it off your bucket list.
