Heli Hiking from Banff/Canmore in the Canadian Rockies
"Join one of our guides for one of the best days of hiking you can ever imagine! With little effort you’ll be transported by helicopter up through a mountain valley and then dropped off onto a high alpine meadow where you’ll have fantastic high alpine hiking, unsurpassed mountain views in all directions… and you’ll be the only people around for miles! From the starting point, you’ll have 2 1/2 to 3 hours to hike over open meadows and ridges with your guide. The hiking difficulty ranges from easy to moderate depending the makeup of the group with lots of changes in terrain. You'll have options to walk grassy ridgelines, cross streams, observe herds of bighorn sheep a short ways away and summit one of the easy to reach mountain tops or walk up to an ancient native medicine wheel."

Steens Mountain Backpacking Guide - Southeastern Oregon — CleverHiker
"As you head toward the southeast corner of Oregon a panorama of raw wilderness stretches across the horizon, beckoning solitude seekers. The Steens Mountain monolith runs nearly 60 miles from northeast to southwest and 18 miles across, with its summit sitting at nearly 9,733 feet. What makes the Steens so special and worthy of the long drive are the massive and mesmerizing U-shaped gorges that run almost a half-mile deep on the western side of the Steens. On the east side, you're treated to views of a near vertical 5,500 foot drop to the expansive Alvord Desert, which offers 30 miles of alkaline playa. The Steens Mountain Loop Road traverses the west side of the range for 52 miles through some of the best scenery in the region. It offers views of Fish Lake, The Kiger Gorge, the Steens Mountain Summit, and offers access to highland trails. Hiking options cover the gamut from high desert washes to subalpine meadows to plush green canyons. In this guide, we’ll help you plan your next unforgettable adventure into one of Oregon’s best kept secrets. "

Border Route Trail
"The Border Route Trail is a 65-mile long hiking trail that crosses the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) in the far northeast corner of Minnesota (Arrowhead) and follows the international border between Minnesota and Ontario, Canada. It was the first long-distance, wilderness backpacking and hiking trail in Minnesota planned and constructed by volunteers" The Border Route Trail is a rugged wilderness hiking trail that follows ridge-lines and the top of high cliffs wherever feasible. Therefore, hiking the trail offers expansive views across the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in Minnesota and Quetico Provincal Park in Canada. Even though the trail is maintained by crews of volunteers, downed trees and patches of thick brush are common obstacles on the trail. Because of its rugged and primitive nature, it provides solitude and a true wilderness experience but also requires good map and compass skills. Hiking the trail is definitely much different from hiking your local city park.

The Best Thru-Hikes You've Never Heard Of | Outside Online
"While overcrowding plagues America's most popular trails, there are still places to find solitude The Appalachian and Pacific Crest trails get all the attention—and the foot traffic—but there are plenty of long walks that aren’t crowded. These five offer the best glimpses into unspoiled wilderness, spanning each region of the country. From hot springs and vistas in the Rockies to less-frequented trails in southern Appalachia, there’s something for every thru-hiker’s skill level."
