Have you just searched waterfalls near me? Okay!If hiking is your “cup of tea” but you’re not terribly keen on heights (or if you just prefer to be out on the trails), then a visit to America’s most scenic natural landscape will leave you with lasting memories: the Appalachian Trail. Hiking the Appalachian Trail is more than just a great fitness routine; it’s an adventure that’s a real test of your mettle. The views along the way are worth the treks, and the experience offers a chance to get close to some very wild animals.
Veliki Slap, Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia. Shaped into different sections of twelve high waterfalls, four lower waterfalls, and a long series of spectacular waterfalls, in addition to gorgeous rock formations and lush vegetation, in between, on the trail you’ll always remember is one colossal waterfall called Veliki Slap. This massive waterfall stands over seven hundred feet high, surrounded by lush forested terrain and surrounded by beautiful flora and fauna. The trail head for Veliki Slap can be found just north of the trail itself, at the bottom of a valley. There are no restrooms or ranger stations for you to use. The parking area for the trail, which is on private land, is also off limits.
Ouachita Falls, Ouachita National Forest, Louisiana. If you want the magnificence and grandeur of a major commercial tourist attraction, but don’t like being on the beaten path, then this is the place for you. A drive up the long road up towards Ouachita Mountain will reveal this impressive waterfall. Once you arrive, you simply have to turn left and head for the impressive falls. The highway exit for Ouachita Falls actually has several parking areas, where you can park your RV and then continue on to hike the entire trail.
Just a short distance from Ouachita Falls, and at the trailhead parking lot is another astounding waterfall named Pelican Spring. It is located about thirty minutes from the falls, where you can begin your hiking adventure. Another excellent choice for a hike near Ouachita Falls is Indian Bayou Park. Hiking here will give you the chance to view some amazing waterfalls, as well as a variety of wildlife.
St. Landry’s Island Lodge, Acadia National Park. If you would rather not spend your vacation in the city, then this is a good option for you. Landry’s Island Lodge is a wonderful choice for hiking trails on the Canadian Coast of Atlantic Canada. Here you can find quiet beaches and quiet little villages that surround the island. One thing that you must know before you go here though, is that the hiking trails are not often very long, so you might want to make sure to bring a tent with you.
Ouachita Falls, located near Fort Frances. If you enjoy waterfalls near beautiful waterfalls, then you will definitely want to spend some time going down to this very popular waterfall. If you want to hike along a trail that travels through a little valley with a view of the waterfalls, then this is the trail for you. There are also hiking trails through woods right at the base of the falls themselves, which makes this waterfall one of the most photographed places in Nova Scotia.
Finally, hiking trails to the awesome waterfalls of Labrador and surrounding islands are also available to you. These trails wind around the island to some of the most amazing waterfalls in the area. Some of the waterfalls have even led to romantic strolls right by them. This area is just a short drive from downtown Halifax and has many activities for visitors who want to get out of the city for a bit. Also, it is close enough to downtown that you can take a bus or train into town, so you won’t have to leave the comfort of your own home.
Of course, if you would prefer to drive and don’t have to deal with much travel, there is still a parking lot right by the trail head for the beautiful Labrador falls. Just make sure you do not drive onto the trail. Labrador is a popular hiking destination, especially for those who love waterfalls. Parking is not difficult at all as there are plenty of spaces on the street. To save time, you can plan on either parking on the road, walking the short distance to the falls, or even renting a trail riding vehicle from the Labrador transportation company in town.
