The two are often linked together: spectacular views and dangerous places. Lots of hiking enthusiasts go to remote locations, rough terrain and overcome major challenges. To get there sometimes takes a lot of courage to face the dangerous man-made hiking trails. These trails are not meant for the beginner hiker and definitely not for those for the feint of heart.
1. Angel’s Landing, Utah
Why So Dangerous: This is a short hike that attracts a lot of people. The number of hikers can lead to traffic jams at the upper point. The route starts with a narrow sandstone ridge with steep drop-offs. During the final ascent is a steep stone staircase. The path is just wide enough for one person. If a hiker decides to pass, they’ll be scurried over the edge. Be careful when passing! The National Park Service states that at least 5 people have fallen to their death but it doesn’t include the number of people who have fallen and have been rescued.
