Whether you’re hiking the Appalachian Trail, or just love chatting up folks who are, Washington National Forest provides primo access to the famous path. Over 10 million people are within a two hour drive of this park, so you’ll meet campers of all stripes walking the woods’ thousands of trails (literally, thousands).

On a muggy summer day, you only need to hike two miles in from the parking area to reach the roaring Cascade Falls to chill out in its refreshing pool (alternatively, you can swim at Sherando Lake, known as the jewel of the Blue Ridge Mountains). Black bears abound in this region, so if you’re bringing in snacks, be sure you’re prepared to string them up in a tree. And even if you’re just a casual jogger, you’ll want to bring running gear—this forest hosts several ultramarathons a year, and you might find yourself motivated to lace up the old trainers.
