Memorial Day is the unofficial start to summer, and thus, the unofficial start to hiking season. With all this time spent indoors the holiday is more welcome than ever. And while some trails remain closed as states continue to grapple with the coronavirus pandemic, many are slowly opening up. Plus, with international travel seemingly off-limits this summer, exploring the paths in your local area might make for the best summer vacation.
