"What Men Want 2007 - America's Best"
By Bobby Model
"If you're going to do something, or go someplace, it might as well be the best."
AMERICA'S BEST - Whatever is worth doing at all, someone once said, is worth doing well. We believe in the corollary: If you're going to do something, or go someplace, it might as well be the best. Which is why we polled dozens of experts and thousands of readers to help us rank America's top golf courses, river trips, fly-fishing spots, ballparks, steakhouses, and more.
What Men Want - Best Hikes
# 6 - Matanuska Peak Trail - Northeast of Anchorage, AK. From the small town of Palmer you ascend 5,670 feet in only four miles to the summit of Matanuska, with views of the towering Chugach and, if you crane your neck, Denali (matsugov.us).
#10 - TURQUOISE TO TWIN TRAVERSE - Lake Clark National Park, AK. With two active volcanoes and a healthy wildlife population, Lake Clark National Park is quintessential frontier Alaska. You'll need a bush plane drop-off and at least a week to trek from Turquoise Lake to Twin Lakes or hire Alaska Alpine Adventures to guide you (www.alaskaalpineadventures.com)
