This hike takes you in a straight line rather than through switchbacks. The result is a gut-wrenching hike over loose rock, vertical scrambles, and sheer drops. You are rewarded with multiple peaks and viewpoints.

 14. Kalalau Trail, Kauai, Hawaii, USA

Distance: 11 Miles
Time: Full Day
Best Time to Go: Year Round

This hike offers beautiful views of the coastline but also evokes sheer terror. Portions of the trail have you facing a rocky ocean below as you edge along a 300-foot cliff.

15. Angels Landing, Zion National Park, Utah, USA

Distance: 5 Miles
Time: 3-5 Hours
Best Time to Go: March to October

One of the iconic hikes in Zion National Park, Angels Landing is not for the faint of heart. Since 2004, there have been 6 deaths from falling off the side of the mountain on this trail. There are even portions of the trail that offer chains to help steady yourself while there are thousand foot drop-offs on both sides. However, once you’re at the top, the views are truly incredible!
