Walked up City Creek Canyon lately? How about a mosey up Emigration Canyon or putting your boots onto a trail in Big or Little Cottonwood canyons?
If so, you're enjoying the trails in what the website for National Geographic says is one of the best U.S. cities for hiking.
National Geographic singled out Salt Lake City on its list, saying Utah's capitol "may very well be the easiest major American city to get out of, which is why it attracts a large population of outdoor-minded folk."
As for the rest of the list, Western U.S. cities dominated, as you might have guessed. The surprise is there were no Colorado, New Mexico or Idaho cities.
Did our neighbors get snubbed? What's the best hiking town you've visited?
